A tree fell in the forest, but I am pretty sure it made a sound even if no one was nearby. As a big fan of trees, I see a certain beauty and dignity in the weathering of the massive trunk. Even after falling, the wood holds up for decades against the elements as if wanting to be remembered.
A little bridge over a stream.
After a few more minutes we reach the waterfall. The water spills down into a small pool, but not quite enough for swimming. After a good rain in spring the waterfall can grow considerably.
This is a very short and pleasant hike in a cool woods even in a hottest days of the year.
