A friend in town posted a picture of Crookes Falls this morning on social media. He said he had hiked there.
This Falls is only about a mile from our house. It is privately owned now and a small dam has been built to harness the energy. Gee if he hiked there maybe we could too, and get close enough to at least take a picture.. So Tom and I set out. Our intention was to simply hike there and retrace out steps.
We under estimated the number of hills between here and there.
there also wasn't a clear path, and when there was it seemed to be covered in chunks of coal. .
Keeping up with Tom wasn't easy,
but we finally did arrive. Look closely and you can see the falls. We didn't go closer as there were no trespassing signs.
We did pose for a selfie with the falls between us.
