We bought our place just about a year ago, and since last spring, Phil & Wyatt have been telling me I needed to walk down to the creek, (Cadron Creek) and see the waterfall. I went today for the first time. From our property, it’s about a 300 yard trek, according to Phil, who is the resident orienteering expert! The first 100 yards or so are easy going, nice and flat, then it gets interesting! Wyatt took me down there today, but he said he wouldn’t do it again, because I whine too much! I was expecting a little water trickling out from rocks a few feet high and running into the creek. When I got there, it was certainly bigger than I expected! Once again, I don’t claim that these are great photos. They don’t come close to doing the area justice, but they were the best I could do while climbing wet rocks, sliding down steep embankments covered with wet, slippery leaves, and the such!
Here’s a shot of the waterfall & cliffs from up top.
One of my “scientist pictures”, as Wyatt calls them…
I made it down to the creek alive! These are some hoop nets that were caught on a tree in the edge of the creek. Wyatt thought they were ancient relics of days gone by, but they were bound together with bungee straps!
The creek…maybe we’ll float it this summer.
Back up to the waterfall & cave
I think Boss was waiting on me. Wyatt and the other dogs had already scrambled all the way up.
I wanted to include this one to show the magnitude of the waterfall. Note Wyatt about halfway up, to the far left.
My child is a dare devil…and I’m probably a bad mother for letting him do that!
The two pups had no trouble getting around, neither did Wyatt!
But the old dogs decided to play it safe!
