Sometimes the gullies have a series of small waterfalls as here. Different heights make different sounds. Watching and listening to the water is a kind of meditation which leaves the person with a rested brain and body, even if just for 5 minutes! This is Buttermilk Falls. The website has prints.
Walking through the Glen is an experience not to be missed: from walking behind/under a waterfall, to the narrow cascades and to the creek's smaller, quieter falls. The book whose jacket is pictured here, won the 2009 Media Award for the best small book from the National Association for Interpretation. A guide book will focus not only on the water, but the rock it travels through, the flora and fauna, the human history and stories, giving you a total experience. Find out about our book.
