Dark Hollow Falls
It rained several days before our ‘walk’.
We started out later than expected. Although the sun was strong like the wind, it was growing dark on the eastern slopes.
Traveling to Dark Hollow Falls is easy. As soon as you leave Skyline Drive the trailhead leads you along the flowing, gurgling waters of the stream which become the falls.
It was hard to imagine we left busy Northern Virginia just a few hours earlier to enter a realm I imagined only existed further out west.
At the bottom of the falls, you can feel the mist on your face from the water crashing down over the rocks. It is at once exhilarating and mesmerizing.
