Another shot from my little anniversary get away two weeks ago. By the overgrown and faint nature of the trail in combination with the profusion of blackberries I don’t imagine this drop would get many visits. Getting to the top of the falls isn’t too difficult, getting to the bottom however was a little more involved.
The falls are in the middle of a big loop in the river, the two ends of the loop in combination with a significant altitude drop being too much of a temptation for the hydro engineers to ignore. So despite its relatively modest flows just above the falls is a weir with a pipe running over the neck of the loop with a small hydro generator at the bottom. The result is a very modest flow in between where the falls are even in spring. Still a nice drop despite this.
Took heaps of shots and finally packed everything up to go home then as I was recrossing the river saw this angle and thought…
