#22 Quartzite Falls

The Quartzite Falls ran along a nice shaded path.

It started out fairly calm.

Behind the branches you can see that shoreline with the steep drop of layered rock.

This was a nice shaded path. It was open walking space without much undergrowth because the trees blocked much of the sunlight.

Geesh.

The shoreline had a rugged beauty with rocks and drop-offs.

These last three pictures were of the same view, but I zoomed in here to show-off the layered shoreline.

Here was a little clearing with sandy dirt.

This is the bridge where we parked. Black Slate River Falls was a short walk up the river. Quartzite Falls was a short walk down the river. Two trails and falls for one stop. Not bad.

    1. Now would be a great time. I’m guessing the fall colors are still out up there. The last two years I went up there in May, but next year I’m thinking about going the end of September. I want to see those colors! My goal is to someday see 150 waterfalls. I hope you get a chance to go soon. The U.P. is so beautiful.
