Moxie Falls...

video

I took a motorcycle ride up north yesterday and stopped off at Moxie Falls, the lighting wasn't that flattering to take a photo so I took this short video instead. I've seen videos posted in some other blogs so I figured I'd give it a try today. Moxie Falls is a 90 foot waterfall and its a pretty easy hike to get to. I've actually hiked down and swam below the falls but it's been at least 20 years since I've done that. The source of the water is a shallow lake so it gets real warm in the summer time. About half a mile upstream there are some smaller falls that you can sit under and that makes for a refreshing swim.

Thanks - no wonder you are willing to hike there.

That looks inviting! Sounds like a freight train though! :)
Cheers, Klaus

Waterfalls are such great places! Good video! The loading process is a pain, but once in a while its worth it. It sounds wonderful to think of sitting in a waterfall right now....it's in the 90's here and miserable.

Great video! I love waterfalls. There was one near my house when I was growing up that I used to sit under. It was fun to watch the water flow in front of me.

Very pretty. Would love to see the other smaller ones sometime, too!
