“There is a waterfall in every dream. Cool and crystal clear, it falls gently on the sleeper, cleansing the mind and soothing the soul.” ― Virginia Alison
I’m slowly finding that the more time I spend at Tettegouche, the more wonders it contains. I attempted to hike to this location last Spring as the sun was setting. I got about half-way before visions of bears and wolves entered my mind. Perhaps, I watched Nature a little too much as a kid.
The hike to the High Falls was great. I loved the suspension bridge, and I also really enjoy the slow reveal of the falls area. It starts with glimpses, then you get closer and really hear the roar of the water. After quite a few stairs through view-obscuring trees, you emerge into the opening surrounded by cliffs and rock. In these moments, especially as a photographer, it’s hard not to get excited.
Every new adventure is a gift. A treasure. There must be something discovery that makes humans so joyful. I’ll accept modifying that last statement to possible includes dogs in the short list of discovery enjoyers. Is ‘enjoyers’ a word even?
Anyway, this is High Falls in Tettegouche State Park.
