It’s difficult looking back at all we have experienced this year to pick some of our favorites. 2017 brought us many opportunities to explore the state that we love. Here are just a few of our favorites.
Thomas Rock, previously known as Gobbler’s Knob, may not have the 360-degree views that the neighboring Sugarloaf Mountain has, but it still offers something spectacular.
Located off of Country Road 510 between Marquette and Big Bay, Michigan is a small but beautiful little waterfall called Big Pup. Although not as impressive as it’s “big brother” down the road, Big Pup offers something magical to those who take the time to visit it, especially in the spring.
“Welcome to the AAA Walls”
The sign that greeted us was dwarfed by the massive rock wall looming before us. Based on topographical maps, we knew that something pretty large sat near AAA Road (Marquette County, Upper Peninsula) but we never suspected it was a solid wall of rock.
We have not yet seen all 272 recorded waterfalls in Michigan but we have seen more than most. We never turn down an opportunity to trudge in a river, scale gorge walls or bushwhack through nature to access some of the most wild waterfalls in the state. Waterfalls are, without a doubt, my favorite subject to photograph. And the more wild the better.
