Early this morning, Luka and I climbed up Goat Mountain to what we call the “waterfall” on the farm. The nearest body of water is about a 20 minute drive. In the sweltering heat, the waterfall is a godsend.
You stand on this platform and pull a cable. Nothing happens for about 2 seconds, then whoosh, a whole lot of cold water comes crashing down. It’s refreshing, in a shocking and harsh way. The platform isn’t very big and there’s a drop right in front of it. Startled screams ring out in the woods as you simultaneously get soaked and grasp the mossy rock for balance.
