Tyler Forks Dells Falls

Tyler Forks Dells Falls - Long Exposure

My main destination for today was a spot called Tyler Forks Dells Falls, a series of rapids, falls, and cliffs. I visited back in 2019 but couldn’t find the trail, and couldn’t pull them up online as I had no reception. Today I had maps, cell service, warm temperatures, and nothing but time to explore. I … Read more

Upson Falls (2021)

Upson Falls - Playing with long exposure

Weather forecast today was an unseasonably warm 80 degrees and I wanted a nice spot for lunch with some shade. It just so happened I was near Upson Community Park and today being a weekday meant it was completely deserted. I previously visited in July 2019 but sunlight was harsh that day, so this also … Read more

Superior Falls (2021)

Superior Falls - Long Exposure

Last day of September 2021 and I’m starting off by returning to Superior Falls for things I missed in the past. Back in 2018 I explored from the bottom which also gives great views along Lake Superior (you can see that trip by clicking here). Today’s task was seeing the falls from above. I completely … Read more

Yondata Falls

Yondata Falls – Long Exposure Photography

Late in the afternoon I was having trouble deciding my next stop. While looking for a campsite along US-2, I stumbled upon a road sign pointing towards Yondata Falls on the Michigan U.P. side. I didn’t even have the place on my list and figured it’s worth a look. Boy was I in for a … Read more

Jennings Falls

Jennings Falls - Main falls view from north shoreline

Another day in Wisconsin’s north woods and it’s a good one. Made my way up to Florence County in search of Jennnings Falls which I somehow overlooked on previous trips. The sun is shining, temperatures are perfect, and the leaves here are turning some fantastic colors. Let’s hit the trail. Access to the falls from … Read more

Menominee River State Recreation Area – Piers Gorge

Menominee River State Recreation Area - Piers Gorge 3rd Pier - Mishicot Falls (Long Exposure)

I was getting a bit burned out from moving between sites quickly, and so this afternoon I decided to slow it down a bit and give myself time to take in the scenery with a bit more leisure. There was one particular spot I had in mind where I missed an easily accessible falls back … Read more

Bull Falls (Blanchette Road)

Bull Falls (Blanchette Road) – View of upper section of main Bull Falls feature

Apparently I chose to punish myself today with difficult and uncertain hikes along the North Branch Pike River. At least for this trip I know a waterfall exists. From my last stop at Road 517 I went north to the next easternly road with no name and parked in the pullout area. Be aware this … Read more

Three Foot Falls Rd 517: Success?

Three Foot Falls Rd 517 - Small rapids along North Branch Pike River

Camped last night at Twelve Foot Falls park and the neighbor’s bonfire nearly smoked me out. Needless to say I was up early and ready to head out. First stop today is at the end of County Forest Road 517 to hopefully settle the score and finally locate the elusive (or completely non-existent) Three Foot … Read more

South Branch Pike River Upper Falls

South Branch Pike River Upper Falls - Front view from downstream

Keeping with the South Branch Pike River I took a long drive through the Marinette County Forest in search of some hard to reach falls. I parked at the far north terminus of FR218 and parked in the pullout. The road forked from here but was too narrow for my liking to take the truck … Read more

South Branch Pike River Lower Falls

Pike Wild River - View of falls/rapids from downstream

One great thing about Marinette County is there are no shortages of outdoors adventures you can have, and it seems like there are more rivers winding through the forests than you could explore in a lifetime. Case in point: I’m jumping away from the Peshtigo River and driving up the road a ways to the … Read more
