All week I had been sick and taken most of that time off from work. I know my body pretty well and when I am not feeling good I just need to sleep and rest to recovery the quickest. Thankfully I already took Friday, Veterans Day, off a few week prior because I worked a full Saturday. I was thankfully for the time off and decided to head to Grate Falls for a quick hike. Its not far from my house and had been seven years since my last visit. I was only starting to get my energy back so a simple hike like Great Falls was certainly in order.
The park was full because of the holiday and the fee free entrance again. I just seem to pick them or they really do have them a lot, haven’t figured out which is happening. The last time I was here I remember coming into the park and heading down along the river so this time I headed up the river towards the small damn they have.
All along the trail I ran into people out enjoying the weather. To be honest it was another perfect crisp fall day with only a few clouds in the air. I managed to find a nice spot along the river to relax for a while. i was trying to make it out as far as I could but the river was a little high from recent rain. I also spent a lot of time right up at the falls just hanging out. Even managed to catch a leaf in mid flight that had blown over the water. All you could hear was the water flowing over the damn and down the river.
Not a very long hike but a great day to be outside enjoying fall. Even though I was sick i still managed to make it out for a while to enjoy some peace and quite.
