She has a particular affinity for garter snakes, and look what we found on the trail above the falls:
|The Daughter found this little fellow on the trail. When she picked it up,|
the garter snake immediately curled up around her finger, seeking warmth.
|There you go, warmed up and ready for the day.|
We didn't get to the falls themselves today. We came in on the east end, and there are a long, long series of very steep steps to the bottom. My left knee hates me right now, and she just wasn't up to it, so we enjoyed the view through the cedar boughs from above and listened to the roar of the water.
Maybe another day, we'll go in from the west, walking upstream. There's always another day.
Do a little Google search on BX Falls Vernon - you'll see how lovely they are.
