to grow in the shadow of a waterfall; alternate title: centipede city

...would be quite a pleasing thing indeed. I was going to title this "Lower Kentucky Falls, Summer Study", but then I realized that it's nearly impossible to get anything but a summer study of this falls, since the road that leads there crosses up through some very high hills and is impassable due to snow much of the winter and spring.

 

Anyway, this falls is always a winner for me, since there is another right beside it and one on the way down the trail. Three waterfalls in a two-mile stretch is a good deal.

 

I will say that this particular visit was a bit, erm, hair-raising, as apparently it was centipede-breeding season and they were everywhere... probably 6-7 of them on each rock, piles of them in the shallow pools, etc. It was a rather disgusting and I had to fight the urge to squeal like a girly girl and run back up the trail. Okay, it wasn't a very hard urge to fight, but I did wrinkle my nose more than a few times as I clambered from rock to rock.
