The Log Jam, Chapel Falls

by Stephen Sengebush

Wake up early, pack the painting gear, water, and snacks, then drive North out of Williamsburg along Ashfield Road.  It’s hot out already and the neon greens of summer are on full display.  The two-lane highway rolls along next to the east branch of the Mill River – destined for the Oxbow and the Connecticut, but now just a small, rocky stream.  Park just before the bridge and hike down into the darkness, where steep ravine walls and tall trees shadow a series of blue cascades.  Perch perilously on a pile of rocks, intrigued by the wild tangle of logs and branches above.  They must have been piled there when the water was higher, jammed together by spring’s snow-melt, now bleached and golden in the reflected light of the trickling brook.
