I posted a shot of some Purgee Brook cascades in Quabbin a short while back. A Facebook friend offered to show me another feature farther downstream which he did yesterday.
Fortunately for me, I am now undertaking these hikes with a reduced kit in a smaller backpack. That made it much easier. I have to admire Pan’s energy and limber fitness. He’s a few years older than I, but hops across rocks and climbs ledges like he is much younger, which in reality I guess he is. Much of age is in our heads anyway. We had a great time hiking and talking and I consider him a valued new friend. Much of what happens in social media is of little value, but there are times when we really do make friends, learn new ways of thinking and gather knowledge that we might not otherwise.
Pan offered to wade in and remove the fallen branch for me, but I like it there. Not only does it add color, but speaks of the life of the brook, with various comings and goings of forest debris.
And, for your listening pleasure, I made a video of the waterfall.
