#18 and 19,The Lower and Middle Falls on Falls River

I’m combining these two falls because they’re a doable distance apart. It’s a little hike up hill from one to the other; but it’s worth it.

We started at the bottom by this power plant. This wasn’t the prettiest start, but trust me – it gets better.

This is the beginning of the trail, just past the power plant. Looks like a good place to fish – at least, someone thinks so.

This bridge was near where that fisherman was.

Just keep walking and there’s one beautiful sight after another.

These falls are in the city of L’Anse.

This is where we stopped to take a rest just to enjoy the sight. This was a spectacular view. Trust me, it’s way more astounding when you see it in person. This is where the river curved.

You know me, I have to get some pictures of the trail. This is typical. You’re going uphill with tree roots, etc. to watch out for.

Love that foaming, raging water.

We were up a ways here, high above the river.

I have a confession to make. I put these two falls together because I was taking shots walking up and coming back down. That was four months ago and I can’t remember which photos went with which one. I do know that we started at a power plant and followed the river up stream. We stopped when we got to a bridge. There was a road, railroad tracks and a Burger King. If you prefer, you can start at the top at the bridge near Burger King and walk down.

The river’s beautiful.
