Photo Challenge: Tacquahmenon River Meets (L)Edge

The Tacquahmenon River in northern Michigan cascades over this ledge of late Cambrian sandstone, as it has for over 50 million years.  The unique amber color comes from tannic acid released by cedar and spruce trees along the river.  Four miles upstream from here are the Upper Falls, which are the second largest east of the Mississippi, next to Niagara.  Downstream, the river flows into the cobalt blue Lake Superior.  Sorry, I couldn’t include a sound track.

“I drink to the roaring river,
My heart as full as the rising waters.”
