Webster's Falls is where Spencer Creek plunges 22 metres (72 feet) into the Spencer Gorge. Not on quite as grand a scale as Niagara Falls, but pretty impressive.
The Falls are 30 metres (98 feet) wide. The thunder of the cascading water can be heard from qute a distance.
Local folklore says the princess daughter of an Attiwendaron chieftan lived near here. She was promised in marriage to a young chief of the Erie Nation. But she had fallen in love with a high-ranking Indian from the Seneca Nation.
The girl's father threatened to imprison her unless she agreed to marry the chosen man, so the young lovers decided that life without each other was impossible. Locked in each other's arms, they jumped over the precipice to meet their death in the rock pool below.
When the water level is high and the air is filled with a silvery mist lit by the full moon, the princess and her lover can be seen to rise to the edge of the precipice, where they again pledge their endless love.
The Space Cadet looks like he took the plunge too, but he managed to keep his feet dry.
To get the the bottom of the falls, we had to negotiate this narrow zig-zag staircase down the cliff face. Not for the faint of heart.
