2013: Ripley Falls

 

Nestled amidst the thick tree cover and rocky boulders on the eastern end of Mont Ripley, Ripley Creek tumbles down many a times forming a series of waterfalls. A long winter in the Upper Peninsula, sprinkled with April snow storm and abundant sunshine raising the mercury levels made for roaring and spectacular waterfall.

There are few different ways to get to this waterfall and after several failed attempts over the past 4 years, I was fortunate enough to have a dear friend, Bethany Jones, graciously guide me through the the easiest of trails in her neighborhood, and help me check yet another item off my bucket list.
