After spending some time at Au Train Falls we drove down through Au Train to Au Train Beach on Lake Superior. I managed to take a few shots while my wife was trying to find the Packer game on the radio.

As we were leaving the Falls a worker at the power station mentioned that there were quite a few other falls up river from the main falls. After searching for a bit we found a trail down to the river. If you can get over the steep sides of the cliffs you will find a number of spring flowing out of the cliffs creating beautiful little waterfalls. You can also reach them by walking up the river.

The Kingston plains is located just outside Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in the central UP of Michigan. It was logged in the late 1800’s and then burned. The fire was so hot the soil was sterilized and nothing grew there for years. Only the stumps remained. This is what it looks like today.
