As the waterfalls larrup…

I love waterfalls, and the impact of the water as it larrups down on the rocks. Something definitely majestic about the force of a waterfall!

larrup \ LAR-uhp \, verb;
1. To beat or thrash.

Origin: Larrup may derive from the Dutch word larpen meaning “to beat with flails”.
