The Lower Falls of Bingham
First view of the lower falls
People were everywhere
|That splash in the left photo was made by a person. On the right is another jumper. I'd still rather jump from a plane.|
|A couple of unobstructed views of the falls|
This guy takes the easy jump
But you have to admit that he does have form
See the jumper in the trees?
There he is!
Thinking about body surfing?
It was very crowded for a Monday
|Okay, so here's where I fell on my ass. I was on those wet slippery rock steps and the trail was blocked by a fallen tree. It was too low for me to stoop under, so I threw one leg over, then the other leg and found the tree even more slippery than the rocks and once both legs were on the same side, I just slid off and down onto the rocks right on my ass. The girl in the photo was trying to grab me to stop my fall. Having my camera always at the ready I snapped this slightly out of focus shot in mid-air. I was okay, though, the only thing injured was my pride. On the right are some cool rocks and more people.|
This is looking downstream from the falls
Looking back up
|The lower falls and the clear teal pool|
|One last look and it was time to take those stone steps back up to Arvie. Budder would be anxious to hit the road again.|
