Waterfall...Deadwood SD

Deadwood Gulch South Dakota.

Discovering gold 'em them thare hills...eventually had many digging in the same area for the same stuff, and in time, the town evolved. This was a rough tough rowdy town.
Hills skyping straight up!!..you look up ..and there is a little shack or a house ...a building of some kind..i do not know HOW they got their supplies there to construct anything!!

In addition to human dangers were mother nature dangers. The weather!...they put their town in the gulch, in between mountains..which when it rained...they flooded.
I am here t tell you, no way would i want to spend the winter trapped there.
All this aside...it is GORGEOUS!!

Here is a waterfall, straight off the mountainside.
I have this 'thing' for waterfalls...i love the sound they make...and they are so pretty to watch.
I took this at 7 a.m. (it gets light there at 4 a.m.!!!)
the waterfall is on the west side of this hill.

Thank you everyone who responded to my question last post...we got some great answers and I really appreciate the helpful guidance.

:)

thanks for coming by...

Whatever the question was Mary, I missed it. I did not miss this waterfall, however. We were in Deadwood in 2006 - made it as part of our Sturgis tour. We were the ones driving an SUV.

It's been forever since I was in Deadwood. Sure don't remember the falls. I probably missed the best part of the entire area. Thanks for sharing this lovely photo.
