I often wondered about the snow picture from February, why the water was flowing so orderly. We couldn't see the bricks!

mystery solved ;->

Isn't Paulding where there is supposed to be some mysterious night light or ghost or something? Anybody seen it?

By Chuck & Vicky, Michigan on Thursday, October 4, 2001 - 07:36 pm:

We just ret'd downstate from spending 10 peaceful days in the UP. We went by Paulding because we had heard about the night light, but couldn't find out where to go to see it. (Next trip I guess.) But we did come across these Bond Falls and were thrilled to see them so soon after we ret'd home. They were listed as a scenic site in a booklet we had picked up which listed Michigan State Parks. We spent a wonderful sunny afternoon at the falls on Sept 25. There were only a few other people there and we felt we had stumbled upon a beautiful secret in the UP. We took the trail and walked the whole circle around the falls and took tons of pictures. Don't miss them if you're anywhere near this spot in your travels. The water in these falls just keeps falling and falling and falling....one level after another.

Visitors should check out the Sturgeon Gorge Falls between L'Anse and the Covington junction. It is a hike into the gorge but is well marked and very pretty. The National Forest area from Sidnaw to M-38 North of Baraga is part of the Sturgeon River "wonderland" with lookouts, hiking trails (one all the back to the gorge from the west), and easy access to the river in several locations. This is not to be missed on a color tour!

Located 4 miles North of Watersmeet on US 45, then west on Robbins Pond Road, travel to intersection of road, don’t turn left, stay straight on road to top of second small hill and park there for the mystery. Since it was first discovered it still defies explanation, it is an unsolved phenomenon of the North. Starting at dusk, the “light” will appear, float around, disappear and change colors. This mystery light can be seen almost every night and continues to attract many visitors. There is no charge.
Here's a site with some articles on this light. Scroll down to "Paulding".http://www.ghosts.org/ghostlights/ghostlights.html

Sturgeon Gorge Falls are worth hiking to...here's a site with some info:

The Sturgeon Gorge is beautiful in the fall. The rim of the Gorge offers the best viewing areas, and just to the north Silver Mountain offers outstanding vistas of the Gorge and surrounding area.

Bond Falls are the most breath-taking waterfalls I have ever seen! I visit them twice a year,in June and October. You won't regret see-ing them!
A faithful visitor every year from Dousman,Wi
