Nymph Falls

After a rather cool and grey summer we are experiencing a gorgeous fall.  Last weekend we hiked walked strolled through the park at Nymph Falls on the Puntledge RiverIt is a popular swimming hole for the younger set, not a place one would take children.  The river is running quite high for this time of year, making the falls a noisy and beautiful sight.

The trails meander through second growth forest ~

We met a woman (~60 years old?) at the water's edge who had lived here since she was five years old and had never seen the falls.   I am happy to say that back in the '70's I was one of these paddlers but these days I am content to walk the trails and watch the fun.
