I always stop to read
My family must think I'm crazy, because they just pass them by.
They really start to roll their eyes when I read the information out loud to them!
But I refrained this time.
I took a picture instead so I could read it to them later... HA!
The gorge is one thousand feet wide, and over three hundred feet to the bottom. It contains a rare forest ecosystem that is virtually unchanged since it's creation by ice age glacial waters.
Now see, I find that amazing! And Johnny Appleseed even planted apple orchards nearby.
The things you can learn about from just a little sign.... ahhhh.
But.... ONWARD. It was time to find the Big Lyons Falls. It started to rain a little too, so thought it was best not to linger too long.
The trail to the falls is a 2-mile round trip, and we had to wait for the rain shower to lessen, but we finally got there.
|HAHAHA..... Where's the water??|
|There was very little rain this summer. Remember? Oh yea. |
So this falls must not be very big to begin with.
|Here's a close-up, where you can actually see the falling water.|
Maybe we'll have to go back next spring and compare.
On the trek back, the sun came back out and I made everyone
put their muddy shoes in the trunk!
We weren't finished yet though.
On the way out of the park we stopped to climb the fire tower.
I think that will have to be another post though, or I'll never get this one posted.
