January 5, 2019 – Thundering Falls – Vermont

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to Thundering Falls in Killington, Vermont.  Thundering Falls is approximately 125 feet in length, and is estimated to be the sixth tallest waterfall in Vermont.  As expected this waterfall is sourced from the Thundering Brook.  The waterfall is located on the Appalachian Trail and is a less then a mile walk, most of which occurs on a boardwalk.

We had a spectacular Adventure to Thundering Falls.  The waterfall was located on River Road, a kiosk marking the parking lot.  Quite pleased to be the only visitors we parked and began our journey.  I was instantly exciting seeing the snow covered boardwalk heading into the marsh, surrounded by mountain views.  It was distinctly gorgeous.  The boardwalk trail weaved back and forth and we could soon hear the roaring waterfall, increasing our anticipation.

After the boardwalk ended we veered to the right and quickly located a sign for the Falls. The trail led us to a viewing deck providing a magnificent view of Thundering Falls.  The Falls was scattered with snow and ice creating a unique and picturesque scene.  I enjoyed standing in front of the falls taking in the full sensory experience.  Of course many photographs and several videos were snapped to capture the encounter.  I was initially thinking of walking up above the Falls but was a bit unclear if there was a trail (due to the snow) and even with my ice cleats the slope with snow was very icy.  I therefore found it a bit dangerous and after scratching my hand on a brief slide down, I decided otherwise.  We then began our walk back to the car, appreciating each and every part of the Trail.

Thundering Falls was absolutely lovely, and definitely one of the nicest waterfalls that we have viewed.  We might just have to return to see the waterfall in different seasons (Rating:  4.5).

PS-I decided to organize my photographs in a larger format so let me know what you think.  Not sure yet if I find it better, or too many to scroll through (as I often have them in a collage).
