The Brink of the Lower Falls – again I got this on video also, but no fast speed internet connection right now. Later I will have to go back though the short videos I took and do several post on them. Until then photos will be it.
I believe this was supposed to be a 1/2 mile to the overlooks – what they don’t tell you is it is all switchback trail going steeply down hill – which of course means uphill all the way back – I did it really slow and managed to do it and even passed up some people who kept going fast and then getting short of breath and stopping to rest.
The beginning of the trail down to the overlooks:
Part of the Canyon that you see before you see the falls:
More of the trail – see what I mean about steep!
The head of the falls – this water is moving fast and it is deep:
the water pouring over the falls:
Look at that water go – such a beautiful river too:
Look at the spray of the water as it hits the walls and the river below. You can see green moss and grasses growing on the sides of the canyon walls from it.
Some pretty bluebells growing on the side of the overlook, clinging to the top
