Hiking Stories with the Lovely Katie

With one of their first dates at Silver Falls and a birthday trip to Lower Montreal to kickoff the waterfall adventure Katie and Jacob seemed destined to explore every last drop in the Upper Peninsula. And they did find many of them. Eventually, as the hikes got tougher and bugs thicker Katie started sitting a few out, though she still makes it up north with Jacob occasionally. Oh yeah, and we're totally married [The Wedding].
