This. Felt. Amazing.
About 30 minutes away from where I live, there is an obscure waterfall in the middle of nowhere called Anglin Falls. It’s in a very remote area in the middle of the Daniel Boone National Forest. It’s so remote actually, that very few people who live in the same county even know about its existence.
It’s a relatively tiny waterfall. If waterfalls were an animal, Anglin Falls would be a squirrel, whereas Niagara Falls is an elephant. But a waterfall's beauty cannot be measured in size. I usually go at least twice each summer. I especially love going after a few days of torrential rainfall, which of course makes the falls more voluminous.
So one random sunny day last summer, after four days of downpours, I knew the falls would be a ragin’. And boy were they ever. Of all the times I had been there, I had never seen it so alive. So I decided to do the only sensible thing - stand under it.
Standing under the waterfall, letting the water wash all over me, and feeling its incredible power was one of the more exhilarating moments of my entire life. I will never, ever, forget that feeling.
Is there a particular moment or memory in which you felt exhilaration? Perhaps you skydived once? Rode a scary roller coaster? Ate an entire bag of Oreos in one sitting? Please share a memory with us.
