The water at Taquamanon Falls in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan has a unique golden color due to tannins leached from the cedar swamps that feed the river. They’re sometimes called the “Root Beer Falls.”

What a beautiful cascade of gold. I hope you were there with your gold pan
If only it really were gold, I’d have been out there with the kitchen colander if nothing else! Thank you!
Thank you! I’m honored to be featured!
Beautiful shot Jan, I love tannin stained creeks. We have them here as well and they can have such a myriad of tones anywhere between honey and white depending on the turbulence.
Thank you for your nice comment. I’ll be sure to check out your photos of golden creeks as well!
