On Sunday, we decided to go on an adventure. We packed a lunch and left around 10am. We were headed for a new waterfall we heard of from our tutor, Kelly. We got totally lost on the way there and it ended up taking over 2 hours, but the end result was worth every minute of driving.
We were immediately rewarded by the sight of the La Seine river running through a deep gorge. Signs posted around claimed this was the land of the fairies, and entering the fresh green woods, I was inclined to agree.
It was a bit rainy but the trail was well maintained and easy to follow. The final waterfall was amazing and Callie found the enchanted tree where the fairies (and some friendly snail neighbors) make their home.
We walked past the falls, seeing some great wildflowers and a bit of the outskirts of town.
We have seen so many waterfalls….they are so life giving – I’m not quite sure why – but they always make me happy.
Waterfall – by Goeffrey Schmidt
Drops and drops of rain descending
With a million million joining
‘till a mighty river flowing
Yields to gravity in falling
Cascading in majestic white
Immense in power beauty of sight
With rainbow mist because of light
Refracting rays for our delight
