Episode Notes

Forest Above Sandstone Falls

Black River, MI

It's late May in Upper Peninsula Michigan,  it's about 45 degrees out with a beautiful blue sky. On this morning I'm visiting three different waterfalls along the Rock River Basin between Bessemer and Lake Superior. 

The fist falls I visited were the closest to lake Superior and were called Rainbow Falls. The river flows along a canyon / basin and the hike to get to Rainbow Falls was steep with LOTS of stairs... Once I got to the bottom, the view of the falls was immediate. The visual "Being There" video is up close and personal. The audio has that massive amount of water flowing over the falls sound. More like white or brown noise with just enough water sounds apparent.

The second waterfall I checked out were called Sandstone Falls. OK, after walking up the stairs from Rainbow Falls, the thought of going down once more to these falls, seemed physically daunting. So I found a spot along the ridge where I could get a glimpse of the water rushing thru some trees and got both the audio from Rainbow Falls just down the river, and Sandstone Falls just below the ridgeline. Also captured some birds starting their day as well.

The third waterfall I visited was Potawatomi Falls and here we get to experience the split falls as the water cascades down into a gorge before again dropping into Gorge Falls.  Luckily for me, the trail was relatively flat with just a few sections of stairs. Again, this remote site was just stunning!

I hope you enjoy these Audio Soundscapes of the three different falls as they are great examples of Brown and White noise experiences with just a few unique sounds.
