Looking Glass Falls in the fall

Below the falls, the creek that becomes Davidson creek, I wonder if it's called that all the way up the mountain?

Stairs wend down to the observation area at the foot of the falls.  Going down is realtively easy.  You know the rest.



There are nice climbing rocks at the bottom, next to the shallow pool, so I ventured out as far as I could with dry boots.  Spray was sometimes blowing my way even then.  I found it interesting that my skill of rock hopping returned to me easily and coming back up was a breeze, because I could tell the rocks weren't really slippery from that angle.  Going down the rocks I was much more careful than on the stairs.

Sorry I called them Window Pane Falls the other day...I've corrected my mistake.  I've been getting those names confused ever since I first visited these falls in 2005 (I think).
