While I sat in the dry nook beneath a small cascading waterfall in the Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina , two young mothers arrived, pushing baby strollers through the woods. They got out the makings for a picnic, then took each of the toddlers by the hand, and helped them come in under the red rock outcropping. Together, they stood a few inches back from the sheet of water splashing down. Once the little ones got their bearings, their moms helped them reach forward to catch some of the streaming water, and they washed their hands for lunch.
