Waterfall in Icebox Canyon - Red Rock Canyon NCA

Hiking up into Icebox Canyon at Red Rocks today I got and idea for yet another epic photo project; “The Waterfalls of Red Rocks” or something along those lines. People including myself hike these canyons all of the time, but almost no one is up in here when the water is flowing. We cross dry stream beds and see the effects of the power of water down in the washes, but it’s very rare to see the huge features actually filled with water and hear it’s sound.

 

Hmmmm, could be almost as fun as the High Points itself!

 

This particular waterfall is on the right as you enter Icebox and is about 80 feet tall. Normally it’s very very dry, in fact I’m pretty sure there’s technical rock climbs right around it. About 6 or 8 days out of the year however it does this.

 

This is 5 frames shot in a complete downpour with an umbrella kind of protecting the kit.
