I think it will be pretty cool too! With this dry spell, I wonder if the color will be peak during the trip. However, I just hope we get a bit more rain to make the falls larger!

I'll try to make it if I can. I'll be back up at school in Houghton by then so it will just be a short drive from there.

Its about 9 for me. Its not really a bad drive, you get excellent gas mileage through the UP cuz they make you do 55mph!

Grab a few buddies and split the drive up or the gas up.

I am planning on doing this! I have one other Jeep on our team so far.

Will most people be camping or staying in a hotel?

I can't speak for anyone else, but I have a site reserved at the campground we would be meeting at. Towing up our pop-up camper.

I have a couple page info packet for anyone that is going. I can email it to anyone planning on attending. Thats why I would like to have people shoot me an email to register, you'll get answers to any questions...

But...that being said, can I join anyone else? My kids were really looking forward to this.

Peterson Falls just outside of Ironwood
Superior Falls on Lake Superior about on the WI/MI border
3 at the West end of the Porkies

Those three were pretty nice when we saw them a few weeks ago./

Nice work!!!

Good deal! It seems the weather has made a turn to the cooler/wetter! I better get the heater fired up in the pop-up before we head up...I'll probably be drying my boots and clothes out, I have a "baby backpack" for the little one I'm going to attempt to use. Not too sure how steady I'll be with her pulling my hair while trying to hop around the falls (not that I am anywhere near coordinated normally!)

The Porkies ones are an easy trail hike.
Superior is going to take a little more coordination to get down by them.
Peterson's I didn't attempt to get down to the bottom of.

I didn't read all the details, but I would love to try to climb some of the falls in the U.P. with my jeep.
I'm going try and make it.
