The Coltsfoot are coming up and blooming along the upper trail at Old Mans Cave.
Their bright, cheery blooms are hard to miss as you walk along the trail.
So the colors are looking much better than to the alternative of this winters trail.
The pool below the falls is full and the water has a beautiful green color.
Years of rushing water has carved out the rocks above the falls.
Looking down from the bridge that crosses above the falls
the water below churns up sparkling bubbles as it hits the ledges and rocks that make up the falls.
In the gorge between Cedar Falls and Old Mans Cave is another falls that may not be familiar with visitors.
It is a 90 foot falls called Crystal Falls.
I can hardly wait until the woods start greening again
and the Jack In The Pulpits will be growing.
Violets will be blooming covering the forest floors.
The wild Phlox will add their blooms to the mix.
And the wild Columbines will be blooming along
the creek in the gorge.
The Cinnamon Ferns will be growing in the shady
hollers and sending up shoots of brown.
The Tiarella Foam Flowers will bloom their
tiny white blooms.
Wild Geraniums will be blooming along the paths.
Bluebells will be decked out with their blooms of blue.
The funny blooms of Dutchmen's Breeches will
be hanging down.
And white Trilliums will be everywhere around the rocky cliffs.
