Charleston Falls Preserve in My World



About five minutes from my house is a 216 acre nature preserve featuring this 37 foot waterfall. It is beautiful in the summer ( I plan to return in warmer weather to take photos) but I think it is more captivating in the winter when the falls are frozen, although it is quite a cold walk into the woods to reach the falls area. The park also has picnic areas, hiking trails, and winter cross-country skiing.

Terrific captures, Carol! I love the frozen waterfall! We used to see a couple of those when we lived in Montana and I always found them to be awesome! Hope you have a great week!

A beautiful and captivating sight, I'm just glad I'm not the one standing in the cold to get it.

I love your frozen waterfalls, they remind me of the Narnia stories.

Carolyn Ford said...

It does look like Narnia! Wow, Carol...

There is beauty in the woods year-round but most of don't bother to take the chilly walk that you did, Carol.
The frozen falls are a spectacular sight.

I wish you warmth and happiness,
Pam

How very cool to have a nature preserve so close to your home! Yes, please take a photo of the falls in summer. :)

Great photos! I'm always impressed to see waterfalls frozen in the act of falling, like this.
You're lucky to have such a beautiful area near your home.

I'm with EG Wow in requesting that you take a photo of this spot in the summer time. It's so lovely in winter and I'm imagining it's grandeur in the summer.

The ice seems to be frosted in time. I love to visit the Preserves, a place where you can also silently commune with nature. I bet its beautiful specially in the Spring.

I've seen lots of frozen waterfalls in the mountains of British Columbia, but this one is spectacular. I love the build-up at the bottom! Fabulous! It made me think of old photos I've seen of the first time Niagara Falls froze, a hundred years ago, and again in 1932. (I checked the dates on Google, because I wasn't around either time.)

Wonderful photos from the frozen waterfall.

Carletta said...

What an awesome sight!
I'm glad you took the cold walk for us. It looks so magical all frozen.
Will look forward to seeing it in warmer weather.

Rose said...

How cold it must be to freeze that waterfall!

I meant to tell you in my earlier comment....I love header photo!

I love these frozen falls. Look forward to seeing the warm weather version when you get there too.
