The Dark Knight rises

By Arvorphoto    
The superhero will rise from his exile and spring from his bat cave to save the world,

Sgwd Henrhyd / Henrhyd Falls
The 90 foot falls (the highest in Wales) occur on a geological fault on the river Nant Llech. A hard layer of sandstone forms the lip of the waterfall. This lip being known as Farewell Rock. So named by the coal miners of the South Wales valleys as coal was unlikely to be found when this layer was reached.

Taken on the second day of my adventure in Waterfall Country after a night of steady rain. Crossing the river proved easy enough and the boots were more watertight than expected. However, in two hours the river had risen sufficiently to make the return river crossing a little more precarious Smile
