"Water Over Rock" Tahquamenon Falls State Park by yooperprof
Tahquamenon Falls State Park Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 20 photos
Tahquamenon Falls - a fifty foot drop in a wide river makes this one of the Upper Peninsula's most impressive waterfalls. It's a well-developed state park, with ample hiking trails, campgrounds, picnic areas, inland lakes for fishing and birdwatching, etc. I particularly like the fact that there's a brewpub on the park grounds!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is one the great unread poets of America. His "Song of Hiawatha" was largely set in the Upper Peninsula; this region is often called Hiawathaland after Longfellow's noble native hero. In Marquette, there's an excellent "Hiawatha Folk Music Festival" every July. I've never met anyone who has actually read "The Song of Hiawatha," though.
And thus sailed my Hiawatha
Down the rushing Tahquamenaw,
Sailed through all its bends and windings,
Sailed through all its deeps and shallows
Longfellow, "The Song of Hiawatha"
- In a nutshell:Blackflies are really bad here from late May to early July
