White Oak Sink Falls

I posted a fall version of this back in October, but spring has such a different feel with the greenery.  I wish timing had worked out for us to experience the flowers at peak, but the textures of the green ferns and ground cover did not disappoint.  Carl’s presence is important to comprehend the scale of this fall, for sure.  Nice shirt buddy!  Thanks for standing completely still for 6 seconds!!

Another amazing thing about this waterfall is the fact that it disappears into the ground, earning the term “Sink.”  Apparently the stream reappears above ground about a mile away, but nowhere near our hike.
