Rest Area Treat

Location: Rest Area 8 miles south of L'Anse,MI

What usually happens when you pass hours of gorgeous scenery on the highway and finally get to a rest area so you can stop and enjoy it? The scenery is only in the rear view mirror, or is lost behind hills, or the rest area is closed.

But pull off in the rest area just south of L'Anse in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and you find the beginning of a short trail that leads to Canyon River and Gorge where the Sturgeon River tumbles over rock after rock until it plunges over a 30 foot wall to become Sturgeon Falls:

A lovely falls in what has to be one of the best rest areas ever.
