This is my post for Watery Wednesday. To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.
As I mentioned in last week’s Watery Wednesday post, while Betsy, who was recovering from knee surgery, enjoyed Bald River Falls, I hiked along the river above the falls and found three other waterfalls and a cascade. I told about the first waterfall and the cascade in that previous post.
The trail (Bald River Trail #88) got more difficult once I got above Bald River Cascades. I did find two more waterfalls, but was not able to get real good views of either.
I could only view Suislide Falls from the top of the falls. Suislide (I have no idea how it got that name) Falls drops approximately 30 feet. If I get back there I would like to see if I can bushwhack to the base of the falls, but I didn’t have time to try anything like that on this visit.
Shallow Falls is immediately upstream from Suislide Falls. It drops from 15 to 20 feet, and I was able to get a pretty good shot of it with my telephoto lens. I would like to do some bushwhacking around this waterfall as well, but that, too, will have to wait for another time.
I was a little over half a mile from Bald River Falls when I spotted Shallow Falls, and it was time to head back to my Beautiful Bride.
