California's New Waterfall?

There's nothing new under the sun, so said Cicero.

It turns out there is.

A 400-foot tumbling waterfall was recently discovered in Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, a forested domain of blue-green felt covering lava cliffs and domes dominated by the sleeping volcano of Mt. Shasta in the distance.

I don't know for sure, but I would guess it's only a few miles from Interstate-5, certainly no more than a score, proving that the most amazing things can exist right under our noses and not be recognized, or even, more poignantly, forgotten, while the engine of commerce rumbles on nearby.
