Tiffany Falls

[1-click to enlarge]


Tiffany Creek tumbles 6.5 metres over the escarpment into a v-shaped ravine. A short side trail from the Tiffany Falls Trail leads you to the waterfall. It's a rough walk, crossing a talus slope with steep, narrow sections.

The Tiffany Falls Trail is part of the Bruce Trail system in the Golden Horseshoe near Ancaster, Ontario.

Hello Barbara,

A bit south for an inunnguaq, no? Unless of course this is your canny way of weighing in the pre/post contact debate on inunnguaqs as opposed to inukshuks... And I would not be at all surprised if it was.

Tschuess,
Chris

This inspires me on my New Year decision to walk more, Barbara!

RuneE said...

It must be worth it, just for the photo!

Charles Gramlich said...

Just the kind of place I have characters find in the savage wilderness where they can bathe and rest in peace for a moment.

David Cranmer said...

My kinda place. Beautiful.

Steve Malley said...

Another lovely spot...

Leigh Russell said...

I agree, the rough walk certainly looks worth it. What a beautiful scene.

Barbara Martin said...

Josh, my thoughts exactly.

Chris, the inunnguaq is often mistaken for an inukshuk with hikers. I took the figure as a message that 'someone had been there before' which is what the figure means.

Raph, there are many places to take walks in.

Barbara Martin said...

RuneE, I like to get close to waterfalls provided its not too dangerous to do so.

Charles, a writer's mind.

David, a nature sprite at heart.

Barbara Martin said...

Steve, Leigh, any of the sub-trails from the Bruce Trail system has their quiet out of the way spots for resting one's soul.

That Ontario looks like a pretty nice place.

bindu said...

Such a delicate waterfall. Love the mossy, fern-covered forest.

Cloudia said...

very pretty. Charles has a fertile imagination to describe such a site in words.

MTA said...

Very sweet and peaceful place.

Maria said...

Thanks for your congrats on my stopping smoking!
Well, I WAS addicted and I had to quit without ever smoking a single cigarette again. I smoked 40, too. You are right, your body is cleansed from within when you stop, that's exactly how I feel! :))))
And: the chocolate tastes soooo much better now!!!
LOL

Barbara, every time I come to your blog it's like a mini vacation. Cinda

Barbara Martin said...

Patti, when the weather is warmer take a drive across the bridge to explore.

Bindu, that is what I liked about the photo: a lazy, small stream of water trickling over the edge.

Cloudia, you just gave me a great idea. Tune in to find out.

Barbara Martin said...

Marie, it is.

Maria, good to hear you're doing well on your recovery.

Cinda, all writers need mini-vacations. I find posting on my nature topics helps in solving my writer's blocks.

Kia ora Barbara,
Beautiful falls, I would love to hear it's song. Reads as if it is an interesting walk to arrive there as well. Have a lovely day.
Rangimarie,
Robb

Travis Erwin said...

Barbara I want to thank you for your brick donation. The peace of mind that all of you have given my family with your generosity has truly been priceless. With great friends like you anything is possible.

Shelley Munro said...

Oh, pretty. You've have a waterfall theme going lately. :)

Rick said...

Barbara, in my wildest imaginings I would never have considered that you could ever suffer from writer's block!

Barbara Martin said...

Robb, glad you like the falls. I needed a break from the frigid winter weather we've been experiencing the last couple of weeks.

Travis, you're very welcome, my friend.

Shelley, I find waterfalls relaxing.

Rick, well I can say it's true and combined with it is a big dose of procrastination.

laughingwolf said...

magnificent!

Barbara Martin said...

Tony, my sentiments exactly.

Ruth D~ said...

I wish I could wander with you. Another beautiful spot.

Barbara Martin said...

Ruth, the Bruce Trail System is open year round for hikers and skiers.
