06.30.2015 Wahconah Falls 2…a long view

From further back with a wider view showing some of the Wahconah Falls Brook leading away from the falls.  If I get out there again, I may try to get to the other side so I can place the downstream flow in better line with the falls, but I like this view just the way it is.  The potential problem with being on the other side is the rocks obstructing the view of the falls.  If I had the youthful disdain for my well being, the place to be would fall     🙂     somewhere in the middle of the brook on some slippery rocks.

  1. Fabulous Steve. Love the way the trees seem to envelope the falls. Great colors.

    • Thanks, James. It is really a very nice site to visit. New England Waterfalls and Waterfalls of the Northeastern Untied States rate it fairly high. Usually at this time of the year the water is just a trickle.

    That looks quite fast flowing Steve. How deep is the water?

  3. While “the place to be would fall somewhere in the middle of the brook on some slippery rocks,” there’s also the risk that you would fall somewhere in the middle of the brook on some slippery rocks.

    • You left out the part where I acknowledge that. The days of my risking severe harm to life and limb are in my distant past. I move very slowly and am quite cautious even in the shallowest of water now. Just falling is something I am avoiding like the plague.

    That would be a good place to explore. It looks cool and refreshing. It must sound good, too.

  5. Great looking falls and a lovely photograph. As Steve S wrote in a comment above, you could be in the middle and fall on those slippery rocks and then the falls would only be a dream or a nightmare, depending on your perspective should be able to crawl or scramble off the rocks. And, I’m so glad that you have the sense not to get in that stream.
