Generally a waterfall cascading 30 to 40 feet to the bottom of the canyon, this year's harsh winter has stopped it in it's tracks. While completely frozen on the outside, water continues to fall behind this wall of ice. Upon arrival, we could hear the water rushing inside, and as we got closer, we could see it through the holes in the ice.
We hiked through the canyon for about three hours- in 15 degree temperatures, stopping to view over six frozen waterfalls of different sizes. With the recent snowfall, many of the ice formations were covered, and not as impressive as past years. In many places, we could hear and see the water of the stream flowing beneath our path - the frozen stream.
We'll head back in the next couple of weeks, to check on the progress of the frozen falls elsewhere in the area.
