A Fine Fall Color Tour 2011 - Part 2

Another spectacular attraction near Grand Marais, Michigan, is the Sable Falls, one of many waterfalls in the Upper Peninsula.

The tourist blurb reads like this:

Sable Falls

Located about one mile west of Grand Marais on Alger County Road H-58. Sable Falls tumbles 75 feet over several cliffs of Munising and Jacobsville sandstone formations on its way to Lake Superior.
