Today I had a chance to sit and listen to my friend, co-worker and Pure Michigan Hunt winner, John, tell me of his hunt for this beautiful, 422# Michigan Black Bear. John is a pretty even-keel kind of guy and to hear the excitement in his voice as the story unfolded was awesome! Wish I'd have been up there filming for you!! #Hunting #HuntMichigan #MichiganDNR #Bearhunting #archeryhunting

What excites you about a waterfall?💦
Reached the deck platform at the top of the falls. The water flow rate was low due to it being late summer. The views are still gorgeous!
09.01.19 - Our first visit to Laughing Whitefish Falls. Part of Michigan’s state parks. Picture this: it’s 9am when we arrived at this remote location. We are the first ones there (kinda nice) and aren’t familiar with the trail. All I’m thinking is what to do if we encounter a wild animal-we brought our pepper spray.😅I’m usually pretty comfortable even with new trails, but for some reason I felt nervous. Maybe I felt on guard because the previous night we camped in our car. We had no access to bathrooms, no cell phone service, and limited water/food. It ended up being totally fine and the woods were peaceful! On our way back out we finally saw fellow hikers going in. I ended up liking being early and having it all to ourselves.😊 See my following posts for photos of the falls.💦
