My buddy and I wanted to take some photos of the river and the waterfalls in non-traditional ways. We were on the trail at 7AM and had it all to ourselves until 8AM. The subdued, cloudy day with drizzle did not stop many families from enjoying an outing. We counted over 100 people on our way out at 11AM. There were cars parked alongside the road for over a quarter mile beyond the parking area. And the drizzle had turned to rain by this time... We had a great adventure scrambling among the boulders beside the river while searching for the best vantage points from which to secure our images.
