The Long Epilogue After

Early in 2009 is when Jacob and Katie moved out of Houghton and down to Wisconsin. Up until it had been possibly to make regular weekend, or even after-work, trips to visit waterfalls in the Upper Peninsula. Now with many of his favorite haunts up to five hours away, Jacob is forced to change his adventures into multi-day camping trips that occur maybe once a month.
