My World #22

This is my posting for the My World meme . It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, Louise and myself. Last week there were over 120 people showing their worlds to us. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. Here is part of 'My World'.

This last week I shared for Sky Watch my trip to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to visit Brandywine Falls. There is a large gorge cut by Brandywine Creek as it heads for the Cuyahoga River. I like the look of this large stone island as I walked to the falls.
This is my first glimpse of the falls through the rocks. It had rained 2.5" for the two days previous so the falls was running at peak flow.
The mist from the falls pointed the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
So, here is that pot of gold - Brandywine Falls - in all it's natural beauty. The walkway can take you in closely to the falls. I loved the show of power from the lower deck.
I went to the other side of the river for a photo then took the easy way back to the car. That was lucky because that is where I got the neat shots of the sky though the pines.
Try to visit the other views of the world it's worth the trip.

Hi Tom- I know you guys had a ton of rain up there, but I've never seen Brandywine Falls have that much water. Amazing. Glad you didn't fall in.

Excellent post Fishing Guy! Hydrology, National Parks ... that's a place I could spend lots of time and never get bored. But first I'd have to look at the data sets (I'm sure they have them.)!
