You’ll then see this cute little waterfall and stream…

Not too much further and you emerge by the waterfall!  Every other time that I’d been to beautiful Lory State Park, it must have been the later part of the afternoon, because it had always been shaded.  Now, I guess what season it is also needs to be taken into account for lighting.  This day we arrived around 9:30am.  Also at certain times of the year, the waterfall has much more water cascading down.

This area is very famous with the painters.  While we were there, so was local Artist/Oil Painter Andrea Gabel.  What a trooper for putting up with our group!  Lucky for her we only stay for about an hour anywhere that we go, AND luckily she was painting the top part of the falls so we weren’t in her way.

Andrea was asked by my sister-in-law if she’d like us to leave the triplets behind (3 year-old sisters).  She got quite the chuckle out of that!

It is soooo much prettier when it’s shaded.  The following image is what you see as you head back out to the picnic/parking area.

This last image is from the parking area, looking towards the picnic area and trail to the waterfall.
