Today turned into a gorgeous day, so I decided to head out to some of the area waterfalls – Shelby Falls near Forrestel Farm, Holley Falls, and Clarendon Falls! I figured that all the rain we’ve been having would have them flowing heavy…..and I was correct!!! So glad I took the time to check them out! Here are some photos I shot:
SHELBY – NEAR FORRESTEL FARM
The water was so high here, it looked more like just a really rapidly raging creek than a waterfall, but the waterfall is there!!!
So beautiful…..I sat there on a picnic bench just watching and listening for quite a while…..so peaceful!!! Holley has a nice park for their falls…..picnic tables, benches, a bridge over the creek, walking trail, and a small pavilion with several picnic tables!
It was too muddy to get down close to the falls, but I still got a couple good shots…thanks to the zoom feature on my iPhone! Clarendon, too, has a nice parking area and a bench to view the falls.
I wish other falls would have easier access — Medina and Waterport both have amazing waterfalls, but you have to be a mountain climber to get to them! They would make great tourist attractions if they would provide easy trails and some seating so more people could enjoy them……but, as they are now, I didn’t even consider going by to check them out!
AND, NOW…..ENJOY THE PEACE AND SERENITY OF THE HOLLEY FALLS:
