High Water on the Menominee River

The Menominee River makes part of the border between Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula. Its shores are lined with conifers and the dark tannin stained water slowly meanders through the northern parts of the midwest. As the river gets pinched in Pier's Gorge the flow naturally picks up, finally making the largest drop at Mishicot Falls, with the next quarter mile of whitewater quite a lot of fun. On this summer day we were blessed with high water. It had been raining non stop for a few days and the river was finally ripping real solid. We brought 4 guides and 2 boats, a 10 footer, and the 16 foot raft that I had got caught on a tree earlier in the day. Rookie guide doing rookie guide things. The run itself was spot on and we couldn't wipe the grins from our faces for a while after that one. Video below:
