Possum Falls



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

This is an example of the serendipity that can occur when collecting waterfalls. We were traveling along on our way to some place else when we rounded a curve and saw this. We had no idea that there was a waterfall in the area. I hit the brakes (fortunately no one was behind us) and we stopped to enjoy this find. After getting home and doing some research, we discovered that we had stumbled upon Possum Falls.

What an amazing find.I have to wonder what or who is hiding in that hole behind the falls.

I think you and Betsy are waterfall magnets! Haha! This is such a pretty fall, I really like the colors in the layers of rock too.

What an interesting name for the falls. Guess the possum got on top and fell off. I have had a real possum around her, but he was under my shed not a falls. Nice post.

Ginny said...

And the possums could get a fine shower there, indeed!!

You should have a bumper sticker that reads, I stop for waterfalls. :-)
That's a long way down!!

Another great fall!
There must be hundreds in your surroundings. Can you send one or two of them to us in the Netherlands??

Of course it was just playing possum all those other times you went right on by. MB

I very much admire the fact that you, a male, are willing to stop your car for a better glimpse (and photos) of a waterfall-- which is beautiful. I cannot say that my husband would have ever entertained such an idea. :)

Ruthi said...

oh you are lucky to see such beauty. i can't wait for spring.

Janie said...

Great surprise find and photo.
I can see water at the top and bottom of the falls, but not in the middle. Could that middle section of water be playing possum? And thus the name...

oh, so beautiful
all our falls are still frozen...

A nice and beautiful discovery.

A dreamy and beautiful place, to be sure. I am glad you found it.

I had a great-uncle who taught me how to take pictures back in the days of Kodak film and light meters. He would stop his Buick for anything he thought was interesting and take a photo. It's the only way to be!
