#38 Burned Dam Falls, AKA: Meximine Falls

The river is the picture and the shoreline and trees surrounding it are its’ frame. Together, they are exquisite.

The blend of everything in nature creates a breathtaking scene.

The branches of the tree look like they’re trying to make a frame.

Now to get down to the mystery of the name. I saw this sign there, but…

I took a picture of this out of a brochure. I wish I would have taken more of it, but I didn’t know I’d be needing it. At the beginning of every waterfall and at the end, I try to take a picture of a sign or something so I’ll know when I look at my pictures, what fall I was at and where our trip there started and ended. You would think I’d remember, but…. uh huh.

 

When we were walking along the river, the path ended right at a sign. We could only see the back of the sign because it was facing up river. I stretched around to look at it. It was an old faded sign that said Meximine Falls. I couldn’t get up river to take a picture of it. Looks like maybe it was called Meximine Falls and the name got changed to Burned Dam Falls. That’s my guess.

The river abruptly changed to having these big slabs of rock.

It looks like two different critters attacked this poor tree.

Another beautiful day seeing falls. Time to head back and get some dinner!
