Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! Here's an image of the always incredible Bond Falls - at night!

Astrophotography is a never-ending journey into the unseen. We have fantastic tools at our disposal now to take a peek into the world beyond our eyesight limitations. That's what draws me to this.. and what drives me to experiment more and keep pushing boundaries.

For this shot - I took (4) 2-minute tracked sky images and stacked them. Then processed them in a program designed for deep sky objects taken with a telescope. This would be the equivalent to 8-minutes of data. What was able to be extracted from this was quite amazing to me. Those faint dust lanes on the outer edges of the Milky Way are now visible. I then took this processed shot and blended that with a long exposure shot of the foreground.

So the big question - is this real? Yes, it absolutely is. This can be done with one single exposure, if you wish. You just won't see this amount of detail or sharpness in the foreground. All of the images used to create this were taken from the same night, on the same tripod, without moving it πŸ™‚

A huge shout out to Jacob Fooy who recently completed his Northern Outdoor Recreation and Leadership internship with us. From bridge in on the Yellow Trail to final touches on the Down Dogger redo, Jacob worked side by side with our builders to gain experience and support the wide variety of work that goes into building and maintaining the NTN trails. In addition he worked on a plan for the expansion of summer trail use at Forestville.

We are fortunate to have a great partnership with NMU that not only allows students to get outdoors but also allows students like Jacob to gain hands on experience with our organization. Thanks for all your help this summer Jacob and good luck in your future endeavors that we hope include trails!

Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula

Hungarian Falls

The KLT's 10-acre Hungarian Falls Nature Area includes the uppermost falls, historic dam, pond, and woodland trails. Visitors are treated to an awesome spectacle year-round but fall is truly a spectacular sight. The uppermost falls are located on the Keweenaw Fault, a billion-year-old geological feature that helped shape the Keweenaw and now stands strong against the erosive forces of Dover Creek. Cascading over the tough conglomerates and basalt's for about 30 feet, the creek then flows through a short gorge formed out of the softer Jacobsville sandstone layers below.

Downstream of the dam and pond are 3 more waterfalls. The lowermost falls are truly a sight to behold. Dropping over 100 feet into the gorge below, the lowermost falls are only visible in their entirety from the base of the valley, but it is a very treacherous and challenging hike down. Most visitors are more than happy to stand at the top of the falls and view them from above.

Directions: Along M-26 west of Lake Linden in Tamarack City, turn north onto 6th Street. Take the left fork (Golf Course Road) and drive up the hill 0.5 miles to an access road on your left marked by a closed gate. Park along the shoulder. Please use caution as some parts of the trail are very steep and there is uneven terrain.

Today, Hungarian Falls is up against US-41's Covered Drive...in the Keweenaw's Fall Colors Challenge.

Who should move on to Round 2?

Finally found the lower falls this year after many attempts. There really is no trail there, but there is a very narrow footpath that forks away from the main trail and leads down to the creek. If you just keep climbing along the creek you eventually get there, but there is a lot of deadfall/washed out areas. You might have to cross the creek a few times so wear shoes you don’t mind soaking.

Definitely the Falls. The covered drive is nice but the falls make you want to keep coming back!!

Good stuff thank you for sharing your knowledge of the history up there is pretty cool. Nice job

Oh this ones a tough call. They are both beautiful.

Beautiful

Took these in 2016

Both are beautiful! Special place in my ❀️ for the Falls!

Love the Hungarian Falls!

They’re both beautiful!!

Important info!Peak Fall Color Soon!
Week 6 U.P. Fall Color Report is now on funintheup.com
Color is set to change quickly this year, it could be two weeks and we might start hitting 75%-peak. In some areas with these temps dropping into the 40s and daytime temps in the 50s and low 60s peak could very well hit in some of the interior portions and western UP . If you are waiting till 2nd week of October to visit the UP for colors you'll probably miss out on the best color and be left with a sad face, but you'll still be in the UP so it should be a happy face. -- Yooper Steve with your weekly UP Fall Color Report
