I read about Bond Falls in one of my Michigan travel books and knew we had to check it out. It was about an hour outside of the town we were staying in, so we drove out quite a ways! We pulled onto the little side road, parked and started walking the trail to the falls. It was crazy because nobody was around. It was so desolate! We were out on this long, back road... in this back parking lot with no one around. Kind of creepy, actually!
The falls were so worth it though. They were so beautiful. It's said that Bond Falls is one of Michigan's prettiest waterfalls and I'd have to agree! There were so many levels where the water would fall. Plus, you could climb up these really steep stairs and see it from tons of different views. I loved it. Brett and I really want to go back in late summer now so we can walk around in them. It looked like it would be really easy to!
I felt like plaid was the perfect type of clothing to wear on an upper peninsula trip. Right? Paired over a warmer sweater dress, I felt very 'up north'. Of course, I had to wear a rain jacket for most of this day because it was cold and wet! We spent a while exploring the falls, but snuck out early because we were so creeped at how 'alone' we were up there! Plus, there are black bears in the U.P. and I kept thinking one would sneak out and say hello and I didn't feel like saying hello to a bear in the wild on this trip! Maybe next time... ;)
I love adventures with Brett. I can't really imagine anyone else who would want to go on these trips with me. I'm super lucky in that regard. I can plan anything (and I mean anything) and Brett will be excited to go and make the trip 100x more fun than what it really is. Being married to your best friend is the best thing ever. We've done so many things together so far in our short five years... I can't imagine everything we'll see in the next fifty.
