This isn’t Niagra Falls or Victoria Falls, but it is a waterfall nonetheless.

At North Clear Creek River, Colorado, we walk down a dirt path that ends at the river and a fifty foot drop. The river rolls to the edge of the drop, then tumbles over and smashes into the rocks and pool below.

 A mist hits my face as I lean over a fence overlooking the falls and look down into the chasm.

This water feature hints at the power of water in bigger quantities, cutting through rock, able to generate power by turning wheels and turbines, harnessed for human purposes.

This little stream, transported to the Sahara desert, would be worth more than it’s weight in gold.

Nature, here, is grinding it’s own ax.

Water and rock is the stuff our world is made of.
