A Quickly Fleeting Fall

After a long, hot summer of initial exploration the fall of 2008 snuck up with little warning. Armed with a time-tested process of researching and hunting waterfalls Jacob heads out to make a dash of final explorations in the cooling temperatures of the Keweenaw autumn. Winter is coming, and it's difficult to find waterfalls when the snow is feet deep and the rivers covered in ice.
