Greetings Austin, Saw this tag and had to take a look. I don't think I have ever seen this falls. We generally stay away from Fall River Road because it is so heavily traveled. Just may have to go and take a look. Very pretty.

Thanks, Rich. I read somewhere that this is the only true waterfall in the eastern part of the park; the rest are all cascades.

I think it's one of my better waterfall shots.

Thanks, BdM. There can't be more than 20 feet (about 6 meters) total drop.

nice shot of a twisty waterfall there, austin! i like those kinds of falls more than the straight drops, except when they're humongous straight drops!

Thanks, brian schaller. I have another (albeit somewhat smaller) "twisty" waterfall here.

Excellent work. Makes me wonder if you were on a bridge or standing in the water.

Thanks, Draken.

There is a narrow gourge with steep sides. The base of the gourge turned somewhat away to my left, and I was on the side of the gourge so that I was at the same level and facing directly at the waterfall. There is a steep, one-way gravel road known as the Old Fall River Road, and this fall is only a very short distance from the road.
