Visiting Erick’s Falls

Erick's Falls is not the prettiest or most impressive waterfall in the Huron Mountains. In fact, with concrete bridge looming upriver from it, it could be considered almost ugly. Even still, with how easy it is to access and the surrounding area, it is worth visiting at least once.

Gear Review: Dutchware Beetle Buckle for Hammock Suspension

A good suspension system is as important as the hammock itself. What a good system entails depends on individual preferences. For me, a good system is easy to set up, reliable, and easy to adjust. Keeping these qualities in mind, I decided to go with a cinch buckle system and use Dutchware's Beetle Buckles for my buckles.

A Road Side Attraction: Alger Falls

Roadside waterfalls are not very common in Michigan, comparatively speaking. But when there is one, they draw a crowd. Alger Falls near Munising, Michigan is one such popular waterfall. Nestled away on the side of the road, it offers easy viewing access to everyone.

Dash Through Snow and Fire

Dash through snow and ice with this fast, fun, and unique 5k. Snow decided not to make an appearance this year but there was plenty of fire to make up for it. With hot air balloons kicking off the race, this 5k is one of a kind.

Finding the Cut

Michigan's Upper Peninsula is rich with hidden histories. Concepts and ideas thwarted by the wilderness. Communities fading away, returning to what once existed before them. The Iron Range and Huron Bay Railroad is one such history. Today echos remain of what once almost existed.

Hiking the Little Garlic

Compared to its neighbors, Little Garlic Falls is an unimpressive, small waterfall that, by itself, isn't worth the effort to reach. However, pair it with a hike along sandstone riverbeds and through pine tree forests and it becomes a waterfall worth visiting at least once.
