I decided to stay here past midnight on the full moon to see how the light danced around the water and rock. The shadows were strange and cool, and it made the whole scene look as if it was a strangely illuminated alien landscape from the original Star Trek.
It was peaceful, though. I was quite far away from the waterfall, and the sound it made when it came to my ears was surreally out of sync with what I was seeing.
