The Black River


The Black River runs about 30 miles from its origin in Wisconsin to where it flows into Lake Superior.


As the river flows over rock it wears away the bed rock at a slow continuous pace. This has caused many beautiful rapids and waterfall.


On the way to the river, there are lots of available rocks for collecting. The only problem is, where are they going to be stored?


While hiking around the river, we noticed there are several low places. Low enough for us to climb on the bedrock and toss rocks into the river.


There is even places for little girls to torment tadpoles. This place has been named “Pole Pond” by the girls. I have a feeling the tadpoles have learned their lesson and will never ever return to that place. I am sure they are thankful that we did not have a jar to put them in. I am thankful my youngest didn’t suggest using her pocket.


I think Wisconcin/Michigan area is one of the most beautiful places God created. 🙂

  4. Great photos.
    I’ve only seen a small part of south eastern Wisconsin and a small part of Michigan but they both seemed very nice to me.

    Personally I’m very fond of places that have mountains in them. 😉
