Stanislaw Koscsiusko, from Poland, was tired of fighting the good fight. He only wished for a place to rest his weary bones. On the other hand his ancestral heritage made him want to be near the rushing water and a good place to fish.

 

Stanislaw selected High Falls on the Salmon River; near where Barnesville Road passes. This spot was more satisfactory to him than where Doc Stanton tried to haunt; Chasm Falls on the same river.

 

Stanislaw had found both an energetic river and a calm place to sit while waiting for tourists to show up. The hiking trail dropped the tourists right at Stanislaws doorstep.

 

Stanislaw could not outshout the falls. Between the two of them the tourist’s ears could not discern one’s voice from the other; nature and Stanislaw were in a constant shouting match.

But, as I said earlier Stanislaw found a calm place to sit. So he built himself a comfortable chair to sit and relax while he comiserated with the waterfalls.

And he waits patiently for the next two or three hikers to show up. He loves to scare them.
