Fairy falls

The path to Echo Bluff passes across the rock shelf in the middle of Fairy Falls. It is not until you get further around the track that you discover that they have a far greater depth of fall. The water is splashing freely at the moment since the rain.

Fairy falls, North Lawson



Words to walk with:
From The Waterfall by Henry Vaughan
"With what deep murmurs through time’s silent stealth
Doth thy transparent, cool, and watery wealth
Here flowing fall,
And chide and call,
As if his liquid loose retinue stayed
Lingering, and were of this steep place afraid,
The common pass
Where, clear as glass,
All must descend
Not to an end ;
But quickened by this deep and rocky grave,
Rise to a longer course more bright and brave."
