Waterfall in the Spring

With the recent warm spell, all of our snow and ice melted in a few days. We decided to hike up to our 35 foot tall waterfall and see what it looked like with what may be the highest water flow rate of the year (and to preemptively answer a question we get asked a lot: yes, the waterfall is on our property).

There was more water coming over the falls than at any of our prior visits to the falls, but even with temperatures having reached over 70 degrees in early March, there was still some ice around the falls.

Here is a short video of the falls in action.

Here is a picture of some of the ice along the left side of the waterfall. It is hard to see in the photo but that large white splotch to the left of the falls is a big chunk of ice.

In addition to there still being ice on the falls, there were large ice chunks littering the creek bed near the bottom of the falls. They likely cracked off of the falls when the weather warmed up.

Here is our dog Penny checking out an ice chunk that is bigger than she is!

    • I agree. But, I am not sure how to get our goats up there for a visit safely as they don’t really listen to commands and don’t walk well on leashes.

      • Goats don’t need to listen to commands or walk on leashes. We are free spirits, and deserve to see the waterfall! Myaaahhhhhhhh! Myyaaahhhhh!
