  • The spring snowpack has the falls super charged and very misty. Parking below is easy, followed by a 100yd hike to the lower platform. If you take the left side of the split it gets you very misty up a set of stairs. As you round the corner, cold windy/misty air takes your breath away- enjoy the view!
  • Bi-level access: first level is dry but not as close as the upper level where you get a fine spray as an added bonus. The tour bus only permits a five minute stop so if you are here on a day trip you have time for only a shot or two including the time to walk to the spot. So if your tour bus is full you will not have time to compose the perfect picture. The falls is impressive owing to the height, closeness, volume and, naturally, the sound. Kind of leave with the feeling that you wish you could do more here if the tour operator had a more desirable schedule.
