This winter I tried and failed to see the Upper Peninsula’s Bond Falls, foiled by the icy stairs. Well, yesterday I went back, and thanks to the recent snow melt the falls turned out to be very impressive.
Most of my photos came out a bit overexposed, but oh well, I was just messing around with friends. You know you’re hanging out with naturalists when you end up spending most of your time with your backs to the big waterfall, admiring the vegetation. Most of the wildflowers weren’t blooming yet so we quizzed ourselves on identifying them by the leaves alone – Canada mayflower, starflower, blue bead lily, Solomon’s seal, trillium, jack-in-the-pulpit, etc. etc. etc.
