This is Tannery Falls; one of the twins.

This is a great picture to show the size of this gorge. “Hello down there!”

Nature gave us this mossy tree, art, sculpture-type thingy to enjoy.

We were told there are two falls back here, but they both dry up at times. We at least got to see one of them.

Do you think there are woodpeckers back here?

That’s Deb trudging up a path or practicing an Irish dance.

Steep drop to the left. Trees in the way. Uh… well… I don’t remember how we got past all that, but we did. It couldn’t have required too much acrobatics or I never would have made it.

This is a little unnerving. A drop to your left and a big hill over your head. These things do sometimes collapse you know. Well, we ventured forth. It looked pretty solid.

That bridge washed out. This might be where the other fall is supposed to be. From what we were told; this is our guess.

Looks scary. Again, I did it so it couldn’t have been as bad as it looks.

Falls! Yeah! We found it!

Do you see Deb there? People bring the size of things into focus.

Interesting layers there.

This is a close up of part of the above picture.

“Help me, I’m falling” said the tree. (This is what you get when I do this late in the evening).

Ahhh. Pretty.

That cave back there creeped me out because I could imagine some big cats living back there. I was told no; they wouldn’t live back there because too many people come and go here. That makes sense. I didn’t want to see them anyways!

Love it.

You know I have to let you in on the journey. Stairs, washed out walking bridges, etc. etc.

Oh, also there’s mud. Alger falls got my shoes a little muddy. Tannery finished them off. I guess it’s worth it. The previous rains mean more mud, but it also means better flowing waterfalls. I’ll take it!
