January 1 update: Replaced it with a higher-contrast version. I worked it up twice and went with the brighter version.The more I look at it the more I prefer the darker one.
The original is in my stash.

Skipping ahead a week to my Gibsonville trail hike last Sunday. This waterfall is where side creek flows into the Silver Lake Outlet just past the trail head. The park road bridge is just to my right.

This reminds me of a time when some friends and I decided to climb a frozen waterfall in Ketchikan, Alaska. After an hour of very dangerous work we made it to the top only to be confronted by another waterfall, with sheer cliffs on either side of it. It is a lot easier to go up than down, so we climbed that one too. Same situation, there was another waterfall, with cliffs on either side. Eventually, we had to climb five of them to get out. I thought I was going to die half a dozen times. It was not one of my better decisions.

Treacherous stuff.

Yeah. We were young and stupid.

Oh, yes. Been there done that. The wonder is that most of us survive it.

Yeah. I went fishing on the Roanoke River with my friend Gary Hatfield once and we noticed that on the cliff behind us was a ledge that went from the bottom all the way to the top. We decided to try walking up that. Well, the higher we got, the narrower that ledge became. When it got to be four inches wide and the cliff started to lean forward, I quit and we had to go back. At that point it was mostly just wishful thinking that was keeping us from falling 100 feet to the ground (granite boulders).

No the moment to take a bath ! :D


Seems a little overexposed but i'm not sure ... You've got details in white...Best wishes for 2021 Steven.

The more I look at it the more I think you are right. I worked it up twice and went with the brighter version. See what you think of the other.

Personnal taste i think it's overexposed, but it's only my opinion and taste, depends on your own liking... My interpretation .
