Today, youngest child and I had a fun day, venturing to a nearby state forest with several waterfalls. We went to the highest one, uncreatively named High Falls. Here are a few pictures. It's really much bigger than it even begins to appear in a photograph. You just gotta see it - and hear it - for yourself.
The folk in the picture are probably 100 feet or more in front of the falls. Click to really embiggen it.
That's me near the base of the falls. You can't even see the top tier of falls from this angle. I'm still farther away than you might think. There is quite a bit of spray from the water, too.
Of course, there are many more spectacular waterfalls in the world. This ain't no Niagara or Iguassu. But it's right here in our back yard, and I love it.
And in other news . . . .
I had a date last night. A real one. It was quite nice. Indeed. This is a different man from the last date on which i reported. I really like this guy. We've known each other a year or so and actually had a meal together before (but that didn't count, exactly), and seen each other at gatherings. Somehow, for whatever reason, this was different. Less eventful than you might (like to) imagine, but that's fine. It was good.
