Mill Creek Falls & Lock 12

Another holiday weekend adventure. Last week we missed out on Mill Creek Falls. Today it was top of the list. It is one of my favorite local falls. Lock 12 itself is quite visually interesting. Especially when the dam is up, and we haven’t received a lot of rain. Visitors may go around the dam but not in it. There is someone patrolling to ensure safety of visitors.

We ran into a very stunning little deer trying to grab a drink on our was to the main dam. Thankfully I have the telephone lens at the ready to snap a few pics.

Mill creek falls are actually above Holtwood dam. A small gravel road takes you to the parking area for both.
