We went to Fonfereck's Glen Park today. I guess in the spring this waterfall really is pretty with lots of water. Dry at this time of the year though.
In another part of the park there are cliffs with a hole in the "ceiling". This was the prettiest part of the park.
This is me standing under the cliff. Actually I am standing in the creek bed. I want to go back in the spring when there is snow melt off. It will be a whole different look from how it looks now.
This is the hole from the top. I walked on the arch. My husband was not too happy that I did that. But it was a cool feeling to be on there knowing that it was hollow underneath.
Look how these trees grow right on the edge of the hole! Rocky ground so there isn't much soil. Nature is fascinating.
Look this spider used a zig zig stich to fix his web! I don't think that I have ever seen a spider like this one in my gardens. The coloring is kind of cool!

This park we went to is beautiful But very dangerous. There was a fatal accident there about 2 weeks ago. One lady died trying to help a teenager who fell. He fell onto a cliff shelf and she fell to the ground trying to help him back up. As you can see from the pictures it is a long way to the bottom. I did take a chance by walking on the arch. But I also made sure that I didn't go anywhere near the edge. Also knew where I planted each step I took. I am not that much of a risk taker. Jeff still wasn't happy with me. You do have to respect nature.
This place is known for teenage parties and there have been some bad injuries. But luckily only 1 death that I know of. There was an article in today's paper on this park. Because there is government funding there are restrictions on how they do guard rail, etc. The park must be accessible. So there are split rail fences and a lot of signage about the dangers.
It was such a beautiful day with cooler weather. I was so glad to get out hiking. Have a great day, Teresa
