On the Way Down

The guys down below give you a bit of scale for just how high

Grand Falls is, and how large those boulders are!  I've seen

photo's of the falls running stronger than this... it's really hard

to gauge when to run out there to take a look, and the trip isn't

just an easy jaunt from town.  So we took our chances that day. 

Uncommonly gray, flat skies disappointed us from a photographic

standpoint.  But the falls were still impressive, and we enjoyed

our adventure together, as usual!   :-)

 

And when down in the gully itself, one does feel quite small!

It is awesome!

Both the falls and your picture, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks a bunch, Ray! smile
i'm glad that the two of you did go to see the falls that day...
i am quite impressed with the size of it all... on the big scheme of things... we are but dots on this great earth Elizabeth....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too, Peter! Thank you!
It is rather impressive... especially given that it just sneaks out of the desert... For such insignificant beings, we've caused a lot of damage, though - haven't we!

This really is a sight to behold!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm glad you think so!
It looks hardly real, if you know what I mean.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do! I felt like that just being there!
A sight to see Ellie.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Truly! Thank you, Michael!
Not only do the dalls look good but I guess they make a very strong thundering noise as they flow down and away.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: There was quite a roar, yes!
You could show this to a young child and tell it this is where chocolate milk come from.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Willy Wonka... smile

This is incredible, I imagine it must be really noisy in full flow.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was putting out quite a roar!

An alien landscape E.

Truly incredible!

I still struggle to get my head around the colour of the water; so much sediment in there. The people give say how huge these fans are.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's really something isn't it?!

Quite an impressive site!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Wonderful and strange!
Great shots, aided by (pardon my disagreement) a fine grey sky.
