We left the campground in Mackinaw City and drove across the Mackinaw Bridge into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We spent 2 nights in Newberry where we explored Tahquamenon (rhymes with phenomenon) Falls State Park one day and the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore the next. The Upper Falls is a beautiful, big waterfall. The Lower Falls has about 5 different small waterfalls. You could rent a canoe to paddle around to see them but we decided to wall along the walkways. A beautiful spot.

The next day we drove to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and saw another spectacular waterfall and the big cliffs of Pictured Rocks.
