This afternoon, I drove out to a new waterfall. I had been on a hike last week with a Jerry Denham and during the hike there was talk of Conasauga Falls. I had never been, but I knew it was relatively close. Doing a quick search on the internet, I had read some brief summaries of the trial and everyone that talked about it, mentioned that it was an easy to moderate hike.
Well, I got there and as I was hiking, I was thinking to myself that this was quite an easy hike. After a few minutes, I started to think about it, it was 98 degrees outside and this was too easy. Then it dawned on me, hiking down a small incline is easy, hiking back up the same incline, not so much. I didn’t realize it, but I should have thought about it, the entire trail was downhill.
Hiking down took about 15 minutes; hiking back, 30 minutes. I had to stop a few times to catch my breath. But in the end it was worth it, I ended up getting some great shots of another waterfall.
One thing about a waterfall…, no matter when you go, or how many times you’ve been, it will always look different.
