Beatson Falls And Hollow Waterfalls

Walk straight to the left, slightly 3 miles from the fork of the trail, along the way, you will be spoiled by the sound of water streams that flow beautifully for miles and miles all the way to Hollow Falls to the basin of Beatson Falls.
Enjoy the feeling of walking on the basalt lava rock field. But some of the fields has wet and muddy dirt as I mentioned above because of seasonal vernal.

Ravine Falls And Phantom Falls

Walk to the right from the fork of the trail will lead you to the most spectacular terrain of waterfalls, nearly 40 feet of water drop.

It was a little bit of a disappointment because there wasn't any waterfall to view and see that beauty. It was just wrong timing.
But other beauty is still there, especially looking over to the field of yellow wild flowers.

Thank you.

An extraordinary place.

🙏🙏🙏

wow, the mountains are amazing, if in Indonesia the mountains are too haunted, different from the mountains of Europeans, always healthy @lugina, greetings from Indonesia

Hi @masril,
Indonesia got a lot of beautiful places too, including mountains ...
It's funny though, all people in South Asia are familiar with ghosts n here in America only about UFO and vampire in movies ..

hahahaha, funny your words, I like to talk to you @lugina

It is a nice place to go with children. I find it so enjoyable to discover the places with them because then you see something with their eyes, hear their thoughts and opinions. The children are so open and straight in expression of their emotions and to express joy, happiness and being surprised.

I love the sound of running river, if I were there, I definitely would have taken my shoes off and walked into cold water.

Thank you for such amazing beauty of nature :)

Hi @stef1,
Thank you for passing by ..
I saw lots of family too, theirs kids were exploring and seemingly curious with lot of thing surrounding.
I got little jealous, i wish Adam can expres his curiosity in bunch of questions. It's in our attention to explain everything he touches n looks because we know his gestures want to be answered ..

One girl was asking her dad, where all that water stream comes from ...and of course his answer was "i don't know" because he was busy with his phone.
Too bad ...

Kind Regards.

The pictures is very beautiful scenery.
