Upper Tahquamenon Falls, Michigan

Next image in the Tahquamenon Falls series is this one of the upper falls from an elevated vantage point nearby, looking further upriver as well.

The description on the back of the card states:

UPPER TAHQUAMENON FALLS

In Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

The Tahquamenon River winds its way for miles through broad swamps, thickly forrested ridges, and between stone cliffs over 100 feet high, until at this point, it pounds its turbulent waters over a 48 foot sandstone cliff — The Falls of the Tahquamenon.

The postcard is dated 1954.
