Last month I wrote an article called The Waterfall Chaser. This new series called appropriately The Waterfall Chaser will focus on photos and videos from our local waterfalls in the Shawnee Hills.
This first entry is a video from Bork’s Falls located at Ferne Clyffe State Park. This fall is on the separated section of the park. A high-clearance or 4×4 is preferred when approaching this fall. A standard front-wheel or rear-wheel with low clearance will have difficulty crossing an unbridged creek. Absolutely do not cross this creek after a hard rain. It only take a few inches of water to make your vehicle float.
UPDATE: Take a look at the comment section on how to get to this waterfall. You can, also, contact the Ferne Clyffe State Park @ 618.995.2411 for more information. Check out the IDNR official website for information regarding Ferne Clyffe @ http://dnr.state.il.us/lands/Landmgt/PARKS/R5/FERNE.HTM
Although technically these are not my best photos, they do show the potential for good shots when the water is flowing just a little more.
