AN EARLY MONOCHROME MONDAY POST: THE 39 STEPS, HOGSBACK


The "39 Steps" waterfall is a popular destination for a short walk through the Hogsback arboretum.  The name has nothing to do with John Buchan's 1915 novel, nor the Alfred Hitchcock movie that followed the book's publication.  Instead, I believe, it is a rough estimation of how many "steps" the stream negotiates as it flows down the rocks.  

I have never counted them, but I would guess the number is much lower than 39!
