Cedar Creek Falls

 This past Saturday our family took a hike up to the waterfalls in Cedar Creek.  Not many people know they are there and you have to own property in Pine Mountain Land Owners Association to get thru the many gates that are there.  The Hafen family owns a few acres where the old archery range was located. 
 Our Son, Jon took these photos with his I phone. Here he captured the sun as it shown through the arch.  The arch was created by water cutting through the rock.  There is a crack in the arch and we fear that it may break some day.
 There are three drops to these falls. When you follow the trail up the north side it gets you to the bottom of the second fall where there is a large pool not shown here.

The trail itself is quite a thrill;  Steep in spots and a lot of climbing over fallen trees and large rocks. 

 I didn't know if I would make it this year, but I did and feel that it was quite an accomplishment.  

The water this year is low.  Other years when there is a heavier runoff you can hear the roar of the falls quite a distance away.  Then when you get to the end of the trail it is spectacular and gives you a rush with the roar and the mist  that fills the air.
