Four days later: I just remembered that this is Agate Falls, which I cover in a post that includes Bond Falls, Falling Waters Four. The information about Morgan Falls is accurate, as is the dining, and I’ve removed the photos.
Actually, I’m not completely sure that this is Morgan Falls, but confident enough to go with it. I do know that we were visiting my son who was living in Marquette, Michigan at the time – in 2005. The lesson is to document, document, document. Otherwise, you can only guess where that photo was taken. If anyone knows a different name for this falls, please feel free to comment.
Morgan Falls is located just a couples of miles outside of Marquette, off of Marquette Mountain Road. There are several waterfalls near here, but this is the most easily accessible. Apparently, we were in a hurry, or not very adventurous that day, since we didn’t look for any of the others. I suppose we’ll have to go back some day to search for the others.
The falls form where Morgan Creek empties into the Carp River. It’s a fairly short fall, only about 20 feet, but still quite lovely. We visited during the spring or summer, but I think it would be worth a visit in the fall, when the colors are at their peak in the UP (Upper Peninsula). If you do go in the fall, be sure to pay a visit to Sugarloaf Mountain for fabulous views of Lake Superior and the surrounding areas. Actually, the views are great no matter what time of year you visit.
Whenever you go, you can enjoy some excellent dining in Marquette. If you like Cajun food, try Lagniappe, a second story restaurant where everything is made from scratch. Enjoy Lake Superior Whitefish at the Vierling Restaurant. For pub food and a great view of the lake, head to the Iron Bay. None of these choices will disappoint you, and all are local.
