The Falls

Waterfall, Big Bend National Park www.bluemesablog.com

Drive down the white road to a path that leads to an immense tree bent over an occasional creek. Weave under the relentless sun and over the cracked earth, where the landscape is muted and blurred by the heat in the air. Descend down into a canyon, suddenly lush with ferns, damp and cool. Climb over rocks and water until you reach the fall itself, a sheer crescent of dark rock that plunges down into a black, glassy pool that reflects the cliff perfectly, so that you can look down into the far-away sky, just as you can look up to it.
