Wyandotte Falls is tucked away on the Misery River in Twin Lakes, less than a mile from M26.  It seems to be one of the lesser known waterfalls in the area, probably because it's not near any other popular waterfalls and can be somewhat seasonal.  The Misery River flows out of Lake Roland, one of the Twin Lakes, and eventually makes its way to Lake Superior.  Before reaching the forested area where the waterfall is, the Misery River moves slowly through a wetland area with several small ponds.  The size of the waterfall is very dependent upon ample precipitation or snow melt.  In dry summer months, it can dry up to barely a trickle.  

Getting to Wyandotte Falls is very easy.  From M26, turn west onto Poyhonen Road.  Going past the golf course, the black top will end. Travel another 275 yards and there will be a small area to park on the left side.  Follow the well worn path through the forest along the river to the falls.  The hike takes 5-10 minutes and the river provides several photographic opportunities along the way.

I visited the UP several years ago. From your images, it looks like it's just as beautiful and wild as it was way back in 1977. Nice images. Hope you keep sharing them.
