Fall Reflections at Black River

The Ottawa National Forest page on Black River Harbor Recreation Area explains:

Known for its spectacular waterfalls, idyllic beaches, scenic hiking trails and tranquil campground, the Black River Harbor Recreation Area is a popular destination throughout the year. Originating in Wisconsin, the Black River flows through forested areas of large pine, hemlock and hardwood trees. The River has a series of scenic waterfalls as it drops in elevation to meet Lake Superior. Tannin (tannic acids) from hemlock trees is what gives it its unique color.

The Harbor offers one of the area’s few access points to Lake Superior, with boating being a major summer time activity. The boat ramp can accommodate almost any craft trailered in. There is no launching fee. Boat fuel and snacks are available through the concessionaire. Parking for trucks and boat trailers is ample.

  1. Good morning!

    I absolutely love getting your emails every morning; I share them on Facebook frequently, both personally and on the page I manage for my employer, Andrews University, to demonstrate the beauty that this school has all around it.

    I just wanted to say that it seems like you post a LOT of images from the UP or at least quite north in the state. If I’m remembering right, I believe you’re from up north yourself, so this makes sense. :) However, I’d like to suggest that you include more photos from the southern parts of Michigan as well, since there are some beautiful places here, too.

    Just a suggestion from a fan. Thanks for sharing your love of Michigan with others.

    1. Thanks for the feedback Becky. You are correct that I post a ton from the northern part of the state. Part of it is my personal believe that Michigan’s north is one of the most beautiful places in the world, part is that I like to share a lot of lighthouses and waterfalls and part is that these pics tend to be most popular.

      Fear not however, as winter takes hold I tend to focus more on southern Michigan!
