Upper Peninsula Upventure: Canyon Falls

Near Alberta, Michigan in Baraga County is Canyon Falls. Like Agate Falls to the west, these falls are adjacent to a roadside rest area--in this case on US Route 41.

Besides some rapids, there are two falls, a lower, on the left, and an upper falls.

By the way, situating rest areas next to natural attractions is a great idea.

The falls are on the Sturgeon River.

Baraga County is named for Bishop Frederic Baraga, "the Snowshoe Priest." More on Baraga tomorrow.
