Manabezho Falls is one of the beautiful waterfalls found in the very western part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In fact it is so far west that is over 600 miles from Detroit, Michigan. 600 miles will practicality get you to New York City from Detroit, Michigan. Crazy, ah? Although, I love New York City, I prefer to visit the UP in the Fall. The width of the Presque Isle River and the variations in the water levels of the river allow for a different view every time I have visited.
