Three of our favorite waterfalls hide in a steep little holler. They’re beautiful and when it rains, they really flow.
Over the past twenty-four hours we’ve had 5″ of rain. That’s a lot for us here at Wild Ozark, and it means serious flooding. The driveway is torn up pretty badly and all of the low-water bridges on our road are washed out.
It also means the waterfalls are really flowing.
Yesterday during a lull between bands of rain we hiked over to one of our favorite waterfalls and I took some pictures.
A spring feeds this one during dry season but it slows to a trickle. When it rains, it really flows and is beautiful.
We call this one the Bridal Veil, though it doesn’t cascade in a nice thin sheet like other waterfalls with that name. Maybe we should think of a different thing to call it.
And then there are the Trickle Falls. All three of these are in the same little holler, banked by very steep hills on either side. It’s hard to access but one day maybe we’ll make an easier to walk trail to get there.
I love trying to catch the splashes in action.
The sound of all this water falling is loud. Here’s a little video clip that will give you an idea of how noisy it all is.
