Marsh's Falls. Here we go again with the Spring Flood!
I like the old bridge-works at Marsh's Falls because the runs of brick give a very good indication of water levels... so this morning I hiked in with a friend from Dwight, Kevin, and of course with Taffy, to check out where we're at (so to speak) in the flood framework. In 2013, the water was over that tiny birch tree on the far bank, so we're not there yet.
Many of our Bondi guests will be familiar with this waterfall in summer, when the levels are low, and you can play and swim on the rocks. You would NOT want to be doing that today. The water slips black over the rocks, boiling into white where it meets the rocks beneath.
This is a detail of the old bridge foundation.
and this looks downstream. That big Pine gets flooded out every spring, but still stands strong against the current. It is an inspiration.
the fast flowing water is impressive, and unspeakably beautiful. This is detail along the very edge of the waterfall.
