I didn’t see any waterfalls on my trip to Chicago, something for which many of you may be grateful. However, that doesn’t mean I’ve run out of waterfalls to show you. This little beauty—not my last one!—is a few miles south of Montebello on the Blue Ridge Parkway. As usual (when I’m not being lazy), there are two versions. The first is a long exposure that softens the water. The second is a normal exposure.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
