The original plan was to hike down to White Oak Canyon and be at the waterfall for sunrise, but that plan had to be scrapped when I got to the trail head in the dark and realized I had forgotten to pack a flashlight. Duh. So what to do while waiting for enough light? I got back on Skyline drive and headed back up north to the Thorofare Mountain Overlook. Only after the sun lit up the sky a little more did I go back down to the trail and start my descent. Even though I got started later than I planned I still had enough time to hike down to the waterfalls before any direct sunlight came through. I'll post photos of White Oak Canyon later.
