McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park is a beautiful place to visit. Lake Britton is great for swimming, boating, and fishing...
And Burney Creek separates the falls from Lake Britton...
But the real jewel here is Burney Falls...
This 129-foot waterfall simply takes your breath away when you are standing in front of it.
Behind the falls is one of the few known nesting sights for the black swift.
We didn't see any swifts during our visit, but we did see this nest high above the falls...
It looks like it might belong to an osprey, or maybe even a bald eagle.
No wonder the falls were called "the Eighth Wonder of the World" by Theodore Roosevelt!
