I thought it would be fun to look at all the beautiful falls in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains! I have always been fascinated by falls and when I was in college I often hiked up to the Cascades in the Jefferson National Forest in Giles County.
The hike is two miles long and is an up hill climb. It is great fun to watch the rushing water and the light coming through the trees. I have one painting of what is called The Roman Road that I sold to a great patron in Martinsville. I also sold a print to the creator of that section of the trail.
The water is extremely cold in the pool at the falls but I spent many summers at Rehoboth Beach where the water is also very cold so I liked swimming under the falls! Some of my fondest memories are of that beautiful place! I hope to go there again sometime soon. It has been a while.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler
Upcoming Blue Ridge Discovery Center Happening!
July 27th, 2014: The Channels, Clinch Mountain
Leaders: Ronald Kirby and Fred Newcomb
One of southwest Virginia’s most spectacular and unusual natural preserves will be explored on this Blue Ridge Expeditions (BRE) hike which is sponsored by the Blue Ridge Discovery Center (BRDC). The part of Clinch Mountain known as The Channels is an area of huge sandstone rock outcroppings where ancient forces have created a maze of giant fissures, some of which now serve as passageways somewhat similar to slot canyons of the western states.
The hike will be a 5 mile round trip of moderate difficulty and will take place on Sunday, July 27. Geology expert Fred Newcomb and Ronald Kirby will lead the group. Participants should call (276) 579-4011 to register and for more information.
