Autumn colors #6 - Pattison State Park
Intro: This is number 6 in the continuing series - Autumn Colors
Big Manitou Falls in Pattison State Park is the fourth-tallest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains, and the tallest in the state of Wisconsin. It is impressive at 165 feet.
Native Americans believed that they could hear the Great Spirit’s voice from the falls. The sound is a constant “thundering” sound. One can feel the vibrations from the pounding water both in the air and with the earth movements as it impacts the rocks below.
There are more than eight miles of hiking trails in this park and there is a second waterfall, Little Manitou which is thirty-one feet high. Both falls are fed by the Black River. The park is located about thirteen miles south of Superior Wisconsin.
Hope you enjoyed your visit to another beautiful park in the Wisconsin park system.
