Family Journal: Hike to Chicagoan Falls

 

Yesterday Owen, Oliver, and I ventured to Chicagoan Falls. The UP has many waterfalls and it is enjoyable to make a day of it and visit one of them. The weather was a bit cool yesterday, but the sun was shining and the boys were restless so we took off.

The waterfalls are located near Long Lake, about halfway between Iron River and Crystal Falls. We did the mile hike and the boys absolutely loved it. They were climbing over the rocks, crossing the log bridges, and generally being boys. Owen kept referring to the survivor series on Discovery Channel. The water was surprising warm, perhaps it is in comparison to Lake Superior. There is always some outdoor adventure awaiting us in the UP.
