Dear Everybody

Marty posted this postcard of Agate Falls that Nick mailed at 1pm on the 14th of July,1939 to Kenosha along with a modern-day look. No word on if Nick’s last name was Adams. ;)

GoWaterfalling.com says that Agate Falls is a pretty waterfall that is relatively easy to get to on your way to or from Bond Falls. They write:

Agate Falls is a Michigan State Scenic Site 6.5 miles east of Bruce Crossing on MI-28. There is a roadside park (Joseph F. Oravec roadside park) just past the bridge over the Ontonagon River. Unfortunately the provided trails and overlooks are somewhat limited. With some effort you can scramble down to the river to get some very good views of the falls, which seems to be popular with local fishermen, or scramble up the river banks to get to the old railroad bridge over the falls. The bridge is now part of a snowmobile trail.

Marty’s Agate Falls slideshow has several more photos including the roadside sign.
