Escarpment Falls



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

One of the joys of collecting waterfalls is unexpectedly coming across one that you had no idea was there. That's exactly what happened with the waterfall pictured above. We were on our way to driving up onto the Plateau this past April on a new road when we rounded a curve and saw this waterfall. There's not a great deal of water, but it sure is pretty and we were happy to add it to our collection.

I stll remember what you have said: A waterfall doesn't have to be huge or well-known in order to be attractive.

Ah, it is beautiful regardless of how much water trickles down those rocks... the fact that it's nestled and hidden in between those trees and unknown is where all of its beauty really comes from.

Very nice, George!

How many waterfalls have you collected?
In answer to your question about the children playing at the beach, yes, they were there because they knew the water was squirting up through the rocks at that spot. There were a lot of people doing the same thing with their partner ready to take a photo as they got soaking wet.
Lots of fun!

I feel the same way when we come across a spring in an arid area and see all the green, even if not nearly as much water as even in one of your small waterfalls. nature is ever surprising, isn't it? And that's what makes it so fun to explore.

In Sri Lanka we have quite a lot of falls that appear in the rainy season and disppear during drier periods.

I think that's a magical waterfall, what a lovely surprise to come upon it the way you did.

It's gorgeous! It doesn't have to be famous in my book to be admirable. Thanks for sharing!
