Edwards Falls – Found
Decided enough was enough and went hiking the creek to find the elusive Edwards Falls. As you head upstream you get boxed in from the gorge walls with no easily traversable paths that would make the falls easily reachable. Getting your feet wet is the way to go. Others have traversed this path as well. I wonder what was here in the past. Brick Foundation that has crumbled but even more interesting is the stone arch to let the water flow under during periods of high water… some more research to do on this. Took longer than expected to reach the falls ~45 minutes, probably could be less but took…
Perry Springs Park
While walking our new Puppy Willow, our neighbor mentioned a new Park in our town that we didn’t know existed. So of course that means time to go on an Adventure. Say hello to Perry Springs Park. Nice little park with some trails around the small ponds and a small Fish Hatchery fed by the natural springs. Added bonus more Raspberries! The kids sure do humor daddy.

Why would you take out the Bocce Ball courts… Add it to the things I’ll have to bring back. Perhaps we can extend the…
Hunt for the elusive Waterfall
Elaine and I went on a Waterfall Hike with the boys up the creek ~ 700 feet from the house. Although we didn’t make it to the waterfall as it required crossing the creek it was still a great time. The boys loved playing in the water and we found a great swimming area that we’ll be visiting when the water level is low and it is a little warmer. I’ll have to wander the creek alone to see if there is a good way to get the whole family to the waterfall. I wonder if we could talk the town into allowing us to build a walking path up the creek…
