Back at the end of August, I was missing visiting some waterfalls.
I found a website that has all of the waterfalls in our area, (listed by county!)
on the internet...along with directions on how to get to them.
But the directions in our rural area aren't always crystal clear....
the roads aren't always marked well.
This became apparent when one of the directions to find a waterfall
said to "follow the two rut road to the right until you see the old, rusted plow" and then take the left fork in the road....!!!
To top it off, the website mentioned that there are FIVE waterfalls
as you follow the river downstream...
following the riverbank.
Normally that wouldn't be a problem, but when we got there,
there was a HUGE rocky bluff we had to climb down to GET to the riverbank...
the riverbanks all the way upstream and downstream had huge boulders to climb up, around or over to find the waterfalls!!!
But we did manage to get down the steep hillside to capture ONE of them
and it was breathtaking.
Full of mossy, huge boulders.
If the water was high, I am sure the boulders would have been covered by the waterfalls flowing over them,
but since it was late summer, we got to see the boulders too.
I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
