Hurry and go this fall for wonderful, colorful pictures and extreme scenic beauty. You must take your camera and try some of the restaurants along the way. Take the whole family.

We spent our morning hiking down the ridge to the bottom of the waterfall was a nice fall morning crisp and cool enjoy the changing colors of the landscape. Parts of the hike whoops fairly steep and with the recent rain were fairly slippery about 4 miles round-trip good exercise 2 mile straight down then 2 miles straight back up.
