After our very long hike, we made it to the Falls. The 30-foot Grotto Falls is formed by the cascading Roaring Fork, which has its headwaters near the summit of Mount Le Conte. Above the falls, the trail, also known as the Trillium Gap Trail, continues to Mount Le Conte. This route is taken by llamas used to carry food and linens to Le Conte Lodge twice weekly from late March to Thanksgiving.
This is the only waterfall in the park that you can walk behind.
"Our aim in education is to give a full life. We owe it to them to initiate an immense number of interests. Life should be all living, and not merely a tedious passing of time; not all doing or all feeling or all thinking - the strain would be too great - but, all living; that is to say, we should be in touch wherever we go, whatever we hear, whatever we see, with some manner of vital interest."
