 Windy Falls - Take 2

Earlier this year, we finally made it to the base of Windy Falls.  Almost immediately after, we started talking about a return visit!  So this past Saturday Darrin organized the Team Waterfall Troops and we hit the rarely visited section of the Horsepasture River known as Windy Falls.

I am not going to write a detailed trip report.  Instead, I will just post a series of photos from our adventure:
