It makes for some of the best photographs and some of the best scenery we’ve ever seen. Black Slate Falls is one of those perfect examples. It is a series of short drops on the Slate River. It’s small, only around 40 feet all together but the variety in stone, the different levels in drops and the overall peacefulness/isolation of the area really made this an amazing waterfall.
