Lower Lewis Leniency

I have an irrational but very real fear when around water with electronics. For some reason they're just drawn to it and love to play in it. This new area to explore, Lower Lewis River Falls in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, was a good test of that fear.

After taking the steep trail down to the water, I inched closer to her flowing locks, trying not to be too forward and fall head over heels. Never underestimating my footing on the slick rock, I made it to the edge just before this drop off to the pool and admired her beauty from a safe distance. Thankfully, she didn't take anything from me and we'll probably be seeing each other again soon!
