There was a bit of mental tug-o-war going on for me this morning – head to the mountains or the gym. The mountains won. I was perusing The Waterfall Lovers Guide book the other night and realized that there was a complete set of waterfalls up the Row River that I had never seen let alone photographed. With those in mind I left early hoping for morning light.
The recent snow storms caused a lot of damage to the timber stands along the road and Brice Creek itself. The Forest Service has done an admirable job in clearing the road but only got as far as Champion Creek and where I wanted to go was well beyond the barricade set up at the bridge.
I had noticed a number of interesting cascades and chutes on the way up so decided to make the most of what was available to me and set about shooting my way down stream
First stop (above) was below Hobo Camp. Nice little cascade.
Went to the next big pullout/access point and found two images. One was of a still bare bit of brush standing against the turmoil of the flow….
… and the second was looking downstream – as you can see the spring flows are filling the channel. Click for larger views.
Had a great morning in a wonderful watershed.
