    • Thanks, Lynette. One of my passions and this one especially. A bit of back story. The day we had to let our third beagle, Murphy, go after months of his surviving a cancer diagnosis of weeks to live, I visited this falls for solace, hence the name Murphy Falls.
      The late Mr. Murphy.


      • So sorry to hear of your loss. Thanks for the context and link.

      • Thanks, Lynette! I read something once from E.B. White in one of his essays about the length of a dog’s life. It’s most usual, and of course sad, that their lives are so much shorter than ours that we lose them and sometimes more than one. In his essay he spoke of his current dog who likely would outlive him since he had reached old age at that point. At my age it is also possible with Bentley surviving me. And the pain I felt after losing Murphy told me that should Bentley predecease me another loss might mean my end. πŸ™‚


      • Dogs are wonderful and our relationship with them is like no other. I have lost several dogs and it’s always so wrenching and awful.

      • Losing a devoted pet, dog or cat, is a pain so different from losing a human. I have no sense of an afterlife on any level, but if there is I hope to meet all my little furry guys when I arrive…but I’m not counting on it. πŸ™‚


      • No, I’m not counting on it either.

    Excellent photograph!
    Love the implied motion. Would be nice to hang out there and just listen to the water.

    • It is indeed. For such a small waterfall it is quite loud. It’s by a dirt road that does not get much traffic but when someone does drive by you wouldn’t know it unless you saw it. If you’d like to know the story of how it got its name I told Lynette above and there’s a link to some pictures. It’s actually just a part of Dean Brook but I dubbed it.
