Sutherland's Grove video

After a series of nights with the temperature down around -7C I thought I'd take a look at the lower waterfalls in the forest at Sutherland's Grove, Barcaldine (10 mins north of Benderloch). The water level was quite low - understandable in view of how little precipitation we've had recently - but the trees, a small covering of snow and the ice were pretty.

The movie starts in the picnic area (where the tallest Douglas Firs are found) then crosses the bridge to view the falls just upstream. This is an easy walk - it only gets tougher when you head up the the hill. If you want to read about the trees I suggest you pause the video when the green description sign appears.
