Independence Day, A.M.

Here we are in the hours leading up to the 4th of July evening festivities, having a little adventure. These are shots Liz caught of our ascent up from the swimming hole at the bottom of a "secret" waterfall.

Rick scales a rocky wall with ease, but it was a strenuous hike for sure.

When I saw what was over the edge, the rocky hike was totally worthwhile. In fact, it was a great part of the experience.

Half -way there!

Happy, so happy with our day at the falls :)

Apparently this is what you do when you have serious stuff to pack in/out. This guy duct taped his cooler shut, tied it to a rope that reaches to the bottom of the valley, lowered it down the falls, then hauled it up later! Good plan. The locals know the in and outs of this spot, and they were all pretty friendly and helpful to us "city folk". Ha! Location, details, and more pics by the beautiful Liz Streight coming soon in the next post.
