More Scott Falls
another spectacular sunny day.
The high temperature today was near 50 degrees. The
entire family field-tripped to Scott Falls again.
Our original plan was to explore the Rock
River Canyon and the Rock River Falls, but the forest road leading
to the falls was still snow-covered and too hazardous. We just
couldn't chance it with the old Chevy van. It is a 4 mile hike
back to the falls from H01.
On our way to Munising to
do our weekly grocery shopping, we decided to hike to the top of
Scott falls. We parked about 1/2 mile away near the old
railroad grade and hiked to the top of the falls. We had a
really great time exploring it from the top and later in the
"cave" behind the falls.
I have several new pictures of
the falls on the photo page.
This is one of my favorites. This is the curtain of ice you see as you
peer out from the cave behind the falls.
