Streams of Lava

If a child ever asks me, “why streams of lava flow down from the roof of a waterfall?”
My answer will be…

Sometimes, at the right time of year, when the snow is melting, and the water is flowing at it’s deepest & most powerful moment, the sun decides to set behind a waterfall… the roof turns into molten lava before it flows down.

I’ve seen it. The water falling over the top turns a bright red color and looks like it would melt your finger if you tried to dip it in. As it falls though, it seems to cool off. The whites of the friction bubbles, and the clear blue tint of the water itself become visible again. It splashes into a deep pool to rinse off before continuing to flow until the creek it came from finds a river to feed … it’s magic!
