Pocatello Falls

Pocatello Falls
This 20 metre cascade, into a deep cold pool, is unknown even to most residents of the nearby region. At the end of a narrow gorge, approached through little footholds on slippery stone, it is a wonderfully convoluted haven of big and little rock pools, finally opening out into this one big torrent.

My family came here first when I was 8 years old and I have returned every year to this gorge in central Vermont unless I am unreasonably detained, and sometimes in the company of special friends. This waterfall has her own personality, her own reality that I sometimes get totally lost within. I think of her as my mother in the landscape.

I've never taken a good photograph of these falls. It's been like looking into the face of someone very, very special - I can't get far enough back to see. And then there's that sacred "thing"... something in me doesn't even *want* to photograph.
