Our biggest surprise of the day!
We were delightfully surprised by this amazing view along Farlow Gap Trail.
We were beginning our final descent down to Shuck Ridge Creek when this sight across the gorge grabbed our attention!!
I've been to Shuck Ridge Falls 5 times now I think, and I've NEVER seen this!! This is the unnamed tributary that comes down the SW side of Shuck Ridge and flows into Shuck Ridge creek just downstream from the falls.
High water levels, and the sun shining right on this, and the wintertime lack of leaves on the trees ... a perfect trifecta to present us with a wonderful bit of serendipity on our hike!
