Tahquamenon Falls on a Winter’s Day

Tahqua Falls 3:4:13.0050

The Upper Falls at Tahquamenon Falls State Park near Paradise

It was a beautiful sunny day—TJ’s birthday—for a trip to Tahquamenon Falls State Park and a look at Michigan’s largest waterfall. Lots of snowmobilers and a few snowshoers plus a handful of us who made the short hike on a nicely groomed trail to the overlooks at the Upper Peninsula park north of Newberry.

I don’t remember ever visiting the falls in the winter, and the park was stunning blanketed in snow backed by a cloudless blue sky. The brown water of the falls with the snow and froth reminded me of a root beer float.

For more about the park see The Legend of Tahquamenon Falls at Great Lakes Gazette.

Mark your calendar for Maple Sugaring Day, Saturday, March 23 at the park, and learn how to turn sap into a pancake topping. Free samples and locally made syrup products will be sold.

You can even take a dog sled ride offered by Nature’s Kennel: $25 for two adults or an adult and two children.

The Michigan State Park Recreation Passport is required for entry.
