Waterfall Take 2

On a second visit to this waterfall, the stream had receded enough to reveal the access stones. I'd still need to cross the stream and push through some heavy brush, and I couldn't clearly remember how to get to the pool. As I was considering my options, a young couple happened by who offered to show it to me. The brush was thick but we were quickly through it, just a bit scratched from the prickly hairs from its thick stems and leaves. At this vantage point, the second tier of the falls was not visible, but we could see the small pool into which it drops. At 9AM, the sun was a bit too strong on the east-facing cliff, so I took some shots but planned to visit again.

A very pretty scene, Martha, this really makes me want to step inside the pic, and go for a cool swim. So nice. #1627196
