As mentioned in yesterday's blog post, the wildflowers stole the show during Sunday's hike into the Chestnut Ridge Heritage Preserve.  However, we also visited some waterfalls!

Not bad. Wonder why the water flow was so lousy? Seems there should have been more with all the rain the region has been having.

These are un-named low flow tributaries, so it would take a lot of water to fill them up. Plus the South Carolina upstate is still technically in a drought! It would be tough to see these at high flow, because the creek crossing required to get to these becomes unsafe during high flow times.

Great shot of ALL of these falls, each of which were harder than usual to photograph well! The top photo of that first waterfall is especially great!
