The Mallard Along Cascade Falls Trail
The mallard along the Cascade Falls trail is enjoying this spring day as he plays in the water. The water often rises to his neck, but he does not sink into the deep. He has a good foothold. Even the water seems happy today.
The Merced Road (Highway 140) follows the course of the Merced River. Along the Merced Road, stop at Cascade Falls at Roadside Marker M1. The waters of Cascade Fall and Tamarack Fall join together along the sloping canyon wall to become Cascade Falls. The water then enters into the Merced River. It is a fun place to stop and to stretch one’s legs along a short hiking trail.
The mallard enters the waters of the deep and the waves do not overwhelm him. We let our eyes stream with tears as we look upon this stream below Cascade Falls, where the mallard plays. The mallard is the most common duck of the northern hemisphere and the ancestor of most domestic ducks. The male has a dark green head and white collar.
