Bond Falls

The last waterfalls that my sister and I visited in the western upper peninsula was Bond Falls.  We both independently desired to visit this waterfalls, so it is fitting that we headed back east only after checking it out.

All of the waterfalls we visited in the Western U.P. are in the Ottawa National Forest.

Bond Falls, unlike the other five falls, is on the Ontonagon River.

I had a hard time deciding which photos to use of this extremely photogenic falls, so I included most of them.

The access to this falls is amazing.  Notice Diana sitting right next to the falls.

Location: Western part of the U.P., on Bond Falls Rd, east of Paulding MI.
Height: 40 feet
Crest: 100+ feet
Water Source: Middle Branch Ontonagon River
Waypoint: 46.40889N 89.13278W
Summary: This is the best single waterfall in the Western U.P, and the second best waterfall in Michigan. If you are in the Western U.P., possibly on your way to or from the Porcupines or Copper Harbor, this is a definitely worth a stop.

Di and I....

Notice the people walking below the right hand section of the falls.
