In the thick of spring, this trail is as lush and verdant as it gets, but on this late-March day the buds and sprouts were just barely rousing from their winter torpor–though a few modest flourishes of lavender oaks toothwort and yellow deep woods violet brought some refreshing color to the journey. Sparse foliage and harsh sunlight made photographing the creek’s namesake falls an unworthy pursuit, so I spent some time downstream studying the picturesque outflow and waited for some high clouds to diffuse the sunlight before pulling the trigger on this charming little stretch of meander.
