As far as I know, this little waterfall has no name. But when we lost Murphy I turned to this particular spot for some comfort. It’s such a lovely little waterfall and the sound, even in low flow, drowns out all else. I was able to be truly alone with my thoughts although I was able to share them with image-making. I now visit it often and have decided to give it this name.
Yesterday started nice enough with a brilliant twilight before clouds covered the horizon ruling out an actual sunrise. Wondering where to go next, I decided to visit Murphy Falls. We have had little rain for quite a while with a one day exception when a few inches fell. But during a stretch of dry weather it will take more than a few inches to recharge the streams and brooks and rivers and groundwater levels. That said, some spots always seem to have something to offer and this is one.
