Michigan's largest waterfalls

This is Bond Falls State Park in Michigan's Western Upper Peninsula. I had heard about this falls but had never been to it. Most of Michigan's waterfalls are in the U.P. The land is actually owned and operated by the local power company. As you start walking down the trail, it is more basic, the water falls down small steps for most of the trail loop until you get to almost the bottom and you are along side of the beautiful falls. There are many good angles to Bond Falls, which made it hard to choose the "right" pic. But this one captures the main essence of the falls (which is on the middle fork of the Ontonagon River ) with a perfect backdrop of white puffy clouds and a gorgeous azure sky.
