Day 227 - Water fall

Today I took the boys to Cunningham Falls State Park to see the falls for which the park is named. It is about a 20 minute drive and 20 minute hike to the falls from our house. We were disappointed in the water flow - the falls are more spectatular after Spring rains.

The forest in the park is second growth. Timber was harvested and the area was heavily farmed by the settlers in the 1700's and early 1800's. The park is spectacular in the fall when the leaves changed to red, yellow and orange.

I really like the intensity of the greens in the last picture and the depth of it too.

That is a wonderful forest! Must have been a nice hike even if the falls weren't as exciting as you'd like.
