Douglas Falls
North Fork Blackwater River
Blackwater Canyon Trail
Monongahela National Forest
West Virginia

This is my all time favorite waterfall, even if it is changing. The once bright red/orange color that once covered the rocks is dulling, but it doesn't take from the beauty of this gorgeous place. Located on the North Fork of the Blackwater River just outside Thomas, West Virginia, the towering waterfall smashes down into a boulder strewn gorge followed by numerous smaller waterfalls and cascades. Just to stand in the presence of this powerful drop of water you get a true feeling of awe. I spent quite some time here just soaking it all in. Not taking photographs. Just listening and seeing and feeling the waterfall that is called Douglas.
