(Posting early to provide some lead time)
Bill suggested we do a Waterfall Wednesday, similar to what his ace support crew’s hiking group does
Illinois has 16 (count ’em 16 waterfalls, none of which are around here
After posting that miniscule waterfall emanating from a drain pipe
I decided to go big time with our greatest waterfall
This one is on Dog Pound Road and consists of another drain spewing treated wastewater
It is quite the tourist attraction as evidenced by the viewing staircase and platform
The wastewater eventually flows to Lake Vermilion which serves as Danville’s municipal water supply
Which leads to the saying:
“When Hoopeston takes a ___; Danville takes a sip”
(Inappropriate, I know ….. Hangs Head in Shame)
Anyway, returning to more germane discussion . . . . .
Maybe we could include any kind of falling water or water feature?
Water features could be a challenge since most are located in private areas
As one sign in town states:
“Trespassers and Burglars — Please carry ID so we can notify the next of kin”
Happy Waterfall Wednesday Hunting!!
