On our day of exploring the Porcupine Mountains, we drove on back winding roads for maybe 45 minutes before reaching this spot on the Presque Isle River. There are three waterfalls on this river, but Nawadaha Falls was the easiest for us to get to at the time. Manabezho Falls is apparently the most scenic of the three, but unfortunately we couldn't get to that one due to a down pedestrian bridge. But, I loved this one, because you could so easily climb down the hill and sit right next to the waterfall. It was so beautiful!
After spending some time at this waterfall, and walking through the (very autumnal) woods, we hopped back in the car to head home for the night! Going through the Porcupine Mountains is a lot of driving if you don't want to space it out over a full week. Since we only had a few days here, we wanted to see as much as we could, and it wears you out! So we just headed back to our hotel, ate dinner at the restaurant there, grabbed hard root beers at the bar, played a game of pool and called it a night. I love the low-key atmosphere in the U.P. You don't feel rushed, and you're never stuck in traffic, and most of the time you don't have a cell signal, so you just have to enjoy the outdoors and play catch up when you're back at the hotel. It was definitely a good refresh.
It wasn't too chilly up there, maybe mid-50's most of the time, so I was able to wear a dress but I paired it with a heavier jacket, thick tights, layered socks and tall boots! I teamed up with Chrissy's Socks at the beginning of the month to style up some of their earthy, knit knee-high socks, and I love these! Super high quality, and I love the neutral colors I chose. They have a lot of different colors, patterns (really anything you can think of for knee-high socks) so be sure to check them out!
