The Meadow Grounds Falls, Part 2

The stream is aptly named Roaring Run. As one hikes along it the sounds it gives off rises from a murmur to a roar. I noticed the intensity most when I had left the gorge and was most impressed by the stillness. There is such beauty along the way that a hiker must go slowly and pause frequently to admire.

A decaying Hemlock log breaks the rushing current

Smaller sets of falls abound along the path

A gorgeous shelf falls nestles in the gorge surrounded by large Hemlock Trees

A rivulet of water creates a spectacular spray as it crashes into the rocks
As when traveling to all wild places
Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints!

That looks like God's country. I am always drawn to woodsy hikes and rushing streams.
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. We were with family and it was super.
