Checked out Gage Falls again for fall colors. It was still pretty green but there were plenty of fallen colorful leaves to add to the interest in the shots I took. This image was taken close to 10am on a sunny day. The light was just starting to hit the falls so it was time to stop. As it turned out, I should have taken this composition early on but it was the last one I took for the day. Even though there are a few bright spots, I still think it turned out OK.

Even though Kevin Adams rates this a "6" in hike difficulty, it is a challenging hike. First, the "trail" is almost invisible and hard to follow. There are a couple of large fallen trees, which require you to crawl under them but it's not too bad. Second, you have to bushwhack from the trail down a fairly steep slope to the stream. Third, you have to walk in the stream for a ways maneuvering around about 3-4 cascades. One is quite tall so we bushwhacked around it. But if you're careful and take your time, it pretty doable.

Thanks for viewing my photos. Comments are always welcome.

Those early fallen leaves look really nice against the green moss Reid question
