A friend of mine told me about this area a few weeks ago and I’ve been meaning to stop by and check it out.  I got up this morning with the idea to do that very thing, so I grabbed a quick breakfast, gassed up the Jeep and road trip!

The waterfall in this area was named for the family who settled there and operated a mill above the falls back in the 1800’s.  The high cliffs and cave like overhangs at the falls and along the creek gorge were once used by cliff-dwelling Woodland Indians over 3,000 years ago!

A few photos to take you along the way…

I sat here for a good 40 minutes just listening and taking it all in.
