This is a continuation of a series of travel posts of a camping trip I took with my family back in July. To start at the beginning, go HERE. The rest of the posts in chronological order are HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
Sandstone Falls was the last waterfall we had to visit on the Black River National Scenic Byway, and it ended up being one of our favorites.
It all started with a beautiful walk through a lush green forest.
It started to drizzle just a bit, so Ashley pulled out her beautiful rainbow umbrella giving me a great photo opportunity.
The walk from the parking lot to the falls is only 1/4 of a mile, but like most of the other falls in the area, it had a lot of stairs.
Sandstone Falls is a fun waterfall because you can get out and play in it and feel fairly safe. It meanders over rocks, so you can jump from boulder to boulder and even wade a bit in certain areas.
It's bordered on either side by gorgeous, lush, evergreens.
Sandstone Falls drops a total of 25 feet in two sections, a five foot initial drop and a twenty foot second drop. Sandstone Falls is named for the sandstone rocks along the riverbed that the water has cut channels through.
My son had a great time playing in this waterfall for it was the most accessible of all the waterfalls we saw on the Black River National Scenic Byway.
What a surprise it was finding these pretty daisies growing happily in this rocky area.
I enjoyed these falls for I could find a comfortable a spot to sit and enjoy the view and not worry about my husband or son doing something stupid and getting hurt. See me sitting on the first rock formation with Ashley and Jason in the distance?
The next day we decided we had enough of woods and water and wanted to enjoy a day in civilization. Read more about our day in Bayfield, Wisconsin in next week's travel post.
Have a Great Day! Amy
