This photo was taken from the observation deck across the river from the falls. This is a state park, which also offers a really old concept of river swimming. Up the river a ways, they have roped off a swimming hole for families to enjoy the cool water and have a wonderful picnic area. This brought back many memories of some fun adventures while I was growing up. I thought the practice of a family swimming hole was a thing of the past. Unfortunately I did not get a picture of the area.
