Watery Wednesday #129: Brush Creek Falls

Brush Creek Falls, Pipestem Resort State Park, West Virginia. April 23, 2010.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

In April of last year Betsy and I made a trip to West Virginia to search out some waterfalls we read about in  our West Virginia waterfalls book.  We only had a couple of days on our trip, but we were able to visit several falls.

We came upon Brush Creek Falls after a fairly easy hike through the woods.  The trail led to the top of the falls, but I scrambled down the banks of the creek to get this picture.

Brush Creek Falls is near Pipestem Resort State Park in West Virginia.

    Oh, I do love waterfalls! And you always capture such beautiful ones, George! This is delightful and I would like to sit and watch it — after it stops raining in your part of the world that is!! Have a wonderful day!

    When you use the word “scramble” that scares me right off the bat. I can just picture you running down some steep, slippery bank with Betsy looking on. You two are too much!

    Wherever water falls, there is a sound that soothes the weary soul…


    Puddles of water and drops of dew—
    What does it take to satisfy you?
    A rushing river, a roiling sea—
    That’s what it takes to satisfy me!

    I pass the Pipestem exit every time I visit my daughter in Virginia. I haven’t been there in many a year.
    Your lovely image tells me I need to plan to stop on one of my trips very soon.
