The US Forest Service attempted to breach the railroad grade, restore the creek, and drain the impounded water in 2012.
Nice! Your pics drew us to the area and its four falls.
Ian if you walk in the river you can access the falls. You have to walk a ways and pass though a under ground tunnel that goes below the road. In the USA you can walk in or swim in any river its entier length or lake for that matter as long as you don't have to cross private land to get in the water. Road ways typically provide the access you need. You could not do this in a high water condition however. Kulibert
You have to remember that many of us have forgotten what it was like when we wee younger and the old bones didn't creak, and groan as much.
PLUS...you went to the end of the world to set up camp, but by doing so you got to view some pristine land that hasn't been walked on, or walked through in a LONNNGGGGG time...(really..who knows?
SO keep enjoying the Lewis/Clark expeditions, or in your case the Lewis/Clark expeditions with many more coveniences then that could have thought of.

Beautiful beautiful! I love the Upper Peninsula!
Interesting. Although they give a link back to Panoramio, they are clearly using it for their commercial purposes. I guess I don't mind so much.
Thanks for pointing it out!
I did not know that Scotch pine grows so tall!
The Onto. River is an awesome trip. Quiet, secluded, we were followed by a Bald Eagle doing thermals with her baby. :)
