My wife and I recently took a Sunday outing up to the Cascades in Giles County, Virginia. I spent a bit of the day chasing her and the dog while trying to get a few photos. Then, a few days later, some rain had come into the area, so I figured I would enjoy the cascades with high flow and low crowds!

On Sunday, even though the parking lot was pretty full, we really didn't come across very many people, the 2 mile trail really lets people spread out!
During my second trip, there were only a couple cars in the parking lot, and I only saw two groups of people during my trip(none at the falls itself). Rain isn't the most pleasant hiking weather, but solitude at a normally busy area is very nice.
I spent most of the day photographing Little Stony Creek and the trail that leads to the falls.
There was a BUNCH of water flowing due to recent rains!
The way up to the Cascades was slow going... I was stopping every 5 minutes to photograph the river. After this last shot, I sat in the rain and enjoyed the falls for a while, then booked it home. Thanks for looking.
