Bond Falls

Amazing Bond Falls in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  This is a series of small falls ending in a massive flow over a series of boulders near Paulding Michigan. This is one of the lesser set of falls but probably the most interesting. The calm waters almost spray over the edge of the rocks creating a veryContinue reading “Bond Falls”
