Root Beer Falls (Wakefield Township) in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
Last Autumn, I spent a week trekking around the Upper Peninsula, in search of waterfalls. With misty, rainy days, the weather was perfect for photographing the numerous waterfalls the UP provides. Tucked away in a quiet corner of Wakefield Township, is the pretty little waterfall, appropriately named "Root Beer Falls".
A little bit difficult to find, as there is no signage or trail to this little gem. I was told that it was very close to the side of a dirt road. To find it, I drove slowly, with the window down, until I could hear the water cascading into the creek.
The area surrounding Root Beer Falls is pretty much a swamp and it was a good thing I had brought my knee high muck boots. Although the Upper Peninsula has much more dramatic waterfalls, I found Root Beer Falls to be one of the most charming. With lots of muck, slippery areas, and rain, it was still a very enjoyable hour.
Below, I've posted a video as well as several photos from the trip. All photos are available as Gallery Wrap Canvas, Vivid Metal Prints, Prints, or Matted Prints.
