  1. Dennis thank you so much for posting this video. I have driven by Goosebury Falls many times. I have not stopped because I have bad knees and cannot walk to the falls. I really enjoyed this video.

  4. The year we were there must have been a very dry year because it sure didn't look like this!

  5. While I was watching this great video, I got to wondering where all that water comes from! I’ve been to the Falls many times, but I never paid much attention to the river. With a little help from Wikipedia I learned about the discovery and naming, and then with GoogleEarth, I traced the river back into the deep woods to its beginning. Amazing! Thanks for an interesting afternoon!

    1. The water comes from the swamps and bogs of the upper highlands area. The brown root beer colored water is from tannin leached out of the roots of the various bog plants.

  7. Upper Michigan's Tahquamenon Falls also has water like that since is is also fed from a similar source. In fact the Wikipedia page for the Tahquamenon also says it is nicknamed the "The Root Beer Falls".
