This is as Far as I could get on foot into the bottom of the box canyon where Bear creek flows out to empty into Okanogan Lake. I was actually balancing precariously on a fallen log that had fallen across the creek at this point and had no where to go except back the way I had come. The creek continues around the corner of the canyon to the right and I could hear the falls but had no way to get there without getting wet, and I was wearing a pair of three hundred dollar boots …so no way!
I thought the colors and the textures of the cliff face were quite interesting though and so took the time to compose myself and get my balance long enough to take this shot. Photo taken Mar.20/2008.
