Today's blog update features the fifth of the falls located on the Black River Pathway as well as some fall color photos.
This fifth out of five falls along the Black River Pathway is actually the first you see as you drive north from Bessemer. Since we went all the way to the harbor first to have lunch, we visited the waterfalls in the opposite direction. It is also the longest walk from the designated parking area at 3/4 of a mile. However, it is a beautiful walk through the woods and well worth the hike.
Location: Black River Scenic Byway, 14 miles north of Bessemer

Here are a series of shots documenting the fall colors. I believe that this year the colors are the best that I have ever seen.
