Kremlin Falls

One last waterfall before the sun sets today.  Just off Hwy 8 in the town of Pembine, Wisconsin you can find Kremlin Falls.  This one is pretty obscure but worth the visit. The falls stretch over quite a distance – maybe 100 yards or so – with the largest single drop right at the top … Read more
