We spent a ridiculous amount of time at this falls, 3 hrs in fact, and I think if it weren't for the fact we ready to gnaw our arms off in hunger we probably would have stayed even longer. When good friends Jason Haley, Bryan Janosick, Randy Sanger, new friend Sarah Hampton and myself arrived around 2:30 the sun was directly hitting the falls and the splash pool. There are several different perspectives of this falls and all of us took up different positions and began shooting. Some time later we were joined by new friend Todd Williams. About the time myself, Jason and Bryan had Camp Creeked ourselves out, Randy suggested we wait for about 15 more minutes because the sun was going to be off the falls. Well, that 15 minutes turned out to be 1 more hour as the sunlight hitting the trees behind the falls illuminated their vibrant color in the splash pool. All of us became caught up in this beautiful display of nature, which made it hard to leave but unfortunately the longing for steaks, pork loin and sandwiches had won out.
