Yellow Branch Falls

Got to take a hike this weekend! Yep another waterfall and a great day to be out in the woods enjoying the trees, flowers and, other things!


uh... this snake is pushing his head into a crack in this log...I guess there's something in there he wants to eat!


The girlz had a big day...and that old gal with her hat on backwards had a great time!!





They look 3-D in this shot dont you think?



Mother natures infinity pool edge...


I think this is a milkweed...its sure was a pleasant surprise in the woods.


My friend has a good eye she spotted a couple of salamanders in the waters edge! I'll have to research to find the name of this one.  He is hiding under a hickory nut shell..


Yellow Branch Falls hike was about 3 mi. round trip.  Some ups and downs along a narrow ridge trail through a very heavy oak,hickory forest later we arrived at the falls.  Water levels were low but the flow was still very nice. This waterfall is about 60 ft tall and its a fan class falls with plenty of rock table layers to creat lots of splashing!!







A really good trip!!! Fun was had by all!!

PEACE

  2. Oh my gosh a fabulous hike! Another beautiful waterfall -- I am so envious. My "collection" pales in comparison.

    Love the snake...he's really pretty, almost a neon blue. And the dogs -- and that gal with her hat on bakcwards look like they're having a great time. And who wouldn't be! Hooray for days off.

  5. I never saw a blue snake. I only know two kinds - rattlesnakes and non-rattlesnakes. That is one pretty waterfall. I would love that hike.

  7. Looks like a fabulous hike! Yes, that's definitely a milkweed though I am not sure what type. I am sure you will find it in an id book since there aren't too many woodland milkweeds. So glad you are getting out and enjoying! :):)

  9. What a fantastic post Sondra the images are superb... we only have a couple of snake species in the UK and they aren't common to see.
