Copper Falls State Park

Copper Falls State Park, in northern Wisconsin, has been preserved by the state because of its waterfalls.

One of three waterfalls in the park, the coppery colored water is why it became known as Copper Falls.

Brownstone Falls is the largest of the three and next on the scenic 1.7 mile hike around the waterfalls area.

I was there on a Saturday and lots of people enjoyed the hike around the falls.

The Bad River rushes through the gorge creating the waterfalls from millions of years of erosion.

Home to many types of plant and wildlife, keep watching around you because you never know what you might see.

Had I not been looking around in the forest behind the falls I might not have noticed this young buck.

Unafraid he approached to within ten feet of me.

The trail around the waterfall concludes with a bridge that crosses the river allowing you a view of the third waterfall, known as Tyler Falls.
