I used to guide backpacking and canoe trips up in the U.P. and there are a LOT of waterfalls up there. Most have been run, but many only in the last ten years. I am still surprised that not many folks have caught on to the fact that the Northwoods is a really great playground. Even in the 90s you could buy wooded lots for $500 an acre.
Many of those shots are very, very, very low water. Manabezho Falls on the Presque Isle is just an awesome drop - super-photogenic with a nice lead-in and then class IV boogie right into the Lake about 100m later. Great climbing and good snow up there as well. Not as much vert, but the Porkies still git-r-done for a lot of pinheads up there.
Oh - the other thing is that "waterfalling" (think that's what they call it) is a popular hobby in parts of the midwest. The object is to hike to waterfalls and take a picture there or something. Sorta the midwest/Northwoods version of climbing 14ers. Anyway, that is why there are websites like that and why someone else has done all the hard work for us already.
Join up, suckas.
