Cataract, IN: Cataract Falls (Upper and Lower) on a Warm Day in Winter

Today was such a nice day (50 degrees on February 1st?) that I took a short detour on my way home to Cataract Falls. I've written about it before here, too. On this trip I spent about 30 minutes hiking and taking photos, from about 5:15-5:45pm.

The Upper Falls were full thanks to the melting snow. The noise was almost deafening, which is what I like when I visit waterfalls.


I crossed the bridge to the other side of the river to try to catch the sun on the water. The trails are a little narrow on that side, but easy to navigate, and they weren't too muddy yet.



As the sun was going down, I tried to catch it in one of the windows of the bridge. The light was so nice this evening (more like spring and less like winter).



Here's a shot outside the window from above.


I also popped down to the Lower Falls. They were even more stunning than the Upper Falls and equally loud today. I would like to bring a book and sit by the water for a few hours at this spot.



If you haven't been, Cataract Falls SRA is one of the hidden gems in Indiana - two waterfalls and plenty of hiking trails make it a wonderful place to spend time at. It's beautiful in all seasons and worth the few extra miles off of US 231 that it takes to get to. The cost is now $7 per in-state vehicle if you don't have a State Park Pass ($50 for the calendar year), but sometimes no one is there to take your money, like today. Enjoy!
