After a Big Snow and Heavy Rains... Powerful!
The last remnant of December's snow under an overlook tree.
The trailhead beckons...
...and the upper falls are roaring!
"I've never seen the lower falls so full" exclaims another hiker who has come to see the roaring waters. He and his friend, cameras at the ready, had also timed their arrival at the falls for the early afternoon light. The falls are best photographed when the sun comes into the canyon.
I couldn't resist a time delayed self portrait at the lower falls.
Divine design! Bubbles in one of the streams feeding the lower falls nest in a pattern.
A fern in the cleft in the rock.
Rocks along the trail.
A mossy stump is a world in miniature!
View between the rocks.
Life in the rocks.
View down the valley.
Rocks along the trail...
...between the upper and lower falls.
