It rained over NW Ark much of the day Friday into early Saturday morning so it seemed like a good time to check out waterfalls on a part of the Ozark Highlands Trail where I knew they were plentiful. It was also a good time to get some experience with my new compact camera – a Canon PowerShot S110. So far it’s proving to be a major improvement from the old HP R740 (that was literally the cheapest camera available at Super Target).
Waterfall #1 is one of the more spectacular but difficult to see well from the trail. The canyon is pretty steep here so getting below the falls for a better picture looked like it would be pretty time-consuming. It could be worth it though.
Waterfalls #2 and 3 weren’t visible from the trail but I could hear them and they were easy to get to. #3 was about 100 feet downstream of #2. Not exactly a waterfall, but I really like the color in this photo.Waterfall #4:About 50′ downstream of #4 is #5, and draining into the same area is #6. Neither is very visible from the trail so I made my way down below. Here’s #5:
Here’s one I passed-up on the way in because I just didn’t see a good picture, but on the way out, there it is:And finally, a couple more shots of waterfall #1. I was expecting only brief scattered showers this day but instead, by the time I got back here it had been raining steadily for 6 hours so there was even more flow.
