Note the lack of “fall” after water. I had intended to post the waterfall I visited on Monday, it is really more a couple of cascades, but decided it wasn’t working. At least not at this point in time. Rocks are not going anywhere so I will have to visit again and rethink my composition. But across, more or less, from that cascade is the Westfield River which runs through the Chesterfield Gorge. For years the river, just below the gorge, has hosted a whitewater canoe race based on times and not anything like the Indy 500. The folks who have organized it for years will no longer be doing so and I haven’t heard whether anyone has taken up the task. I’d guess this stretch of the river would destroy canoes so is probably better for rafting although I haven’t heard of anyone doing that. It does host catch and release fishing that can only be done with lures, no bait, and no bringing home dinner.
There were other items of interest along the trail, one of which was the previously mentioned Painted Trillium and a moss that apparently is fairly common but new to me.
