There are few sounds in nature that I find to be more soothing than the sound of water. Whether it's the sound of raindrops drumming on the roof, a gurgling stream, waves crashing on the beach, or the roar of a waterfall, this vital element of life produces a sound that can quiet even the most jittery and anxious nerves.
I recently realized that although I wrote about my hiking adventure to Falls Creek Falls in my "In Search of Old Growth" piece, I completely neglected to share any images of the Falls itself! This Nature Nerd Wednesday, I decided that it was time to remedy that situation, so please enjoy the soothing sound of Falls Creek Falls in my video below.
You can imagine what a delight it was to reach this breathtaking sight at the end of the trail. This grotto-like falls tumbles through old growth forest, splashing into a basin below thickly covered with verdant moss and reminiscent of a fairy pool. I could have easily settled down onto one of the mossy boulders and listened to the rushing waterfall for hours.
