While standing in the water taking this photo, I was also mesmerized by some of the details of the Elakala waterfall.  Sometimes, the little details can be just as charming as the whole. And pausing to admire the details can be a valuable lesson for us this month.

For this photo, it was time to get wet. All five legs in the water (I’m counting the tripod here, don’t worry). This is Elakala Falls. As it turns out, Elekala Falls has three falls sections, each one apparently progressively more difficult to access, according to our West Virginia waterfalls book that Lisa found. These are only of the upper, most accessible falls, a short distance from the lodge.Title: Elakala Falls II
