This waterfall was a 12-mile round-trip hike into grizzly bear country. The regulations require that you hike in groups of four or more, so we tagged along with a group of people we met in the parking lot. The group ended up being the Sierra Hiking Club, who were some hard core hikers! It was challenging keeping up with them, to say the least! I generally like to stop for scenery shots, but they barely paused for anything. I only had about 20 minutes at the waterfall (to eat and shoot pictures). I wish I'd had more time because there were lots of interesting aspects to this waterfall, but I had to stay with the group.

If effort meant that your picture was greater, then this picture should be rated great! We were exhausted afterwards (especially since we'd gotten up at 3:30 am and only had 4 1/2 hours sleep)! :faint:

The description of this waterfall always seems to include the word "juggernaut"...and since the real name is boring (Falls Creek Falls) perhaps a name change is in order? :giggle:

A moderate uphill hike of 1.7 miles through the forest leads you to this waterfall. Photos do not convey just how large this waterfall is...and you can't see all of it in this photo. There are three drops for a total of 207 feet.

Rustic Falls is located on Orcas Island. I saw this waterfall about 6 years ago so I thought it was time I went back. Glad to see that the fallen tree with the fern growing on it was still there. :D

After seeing pics from :iconnwunseen: and :iconlalight: I figured it was time for me to make a visit to the grand Panther Creek Falls.

The description in their photos told tales of having to scale down a rock cliff to get to the base of the falls and then making your way onto a wet, mossy log while being battered by mist to get the best shot.

Sooooo, I came equipped with all my Pacific Northwest gear....waterproof shoes, water resistant pants, waterproof jacket, rainsleeve for my camera, lens cloths for drying off the constant mist....and of course my camera, wide angle lens, polarizer, and sturdy Gitzo tripod.

The scramble down wasn't as hard as expected....but I wouldn't recommend it for people who aren't used to the wet environment of the Pacific Northwest. A rope was left by a previous hiker, but I found the rocks were fine for grasping. Once you get down to the first landing, I suggest you go to the left (if you're facing downward) to avoid the muddy descent to the right.

You can't trust wet moss on a log...or even a wet log. My very first digital camera took a dip in a creek due to a walk on a wet log. But I made sure to stay in the middle and take small, careful steps.

I chose to present you with a closer look at the falls, rather than the wider view that Addam and LeeAnne posted. I'll probably post a wider view later.

This waterfall is huge and quite the sight to see in person. I highly recommend it if you are ever in the area. :D

If you are up for the challenge, there is a lower tier to the falls after another scramble down the steep embankment.

Johnston Canyon is located in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. The hike is very popular and is best done early in the morning.

This waterfall is currently unnamed, but the proposed name for it is "Cavern Falls" which I think fits nicely. :)

If you like this shot, you might also like my shot taken nearby at Moraine Lake:

It was for this shot that I made the 10-hour drive up to Banff National Park. This was my last day in Canada and I got up at 3:30am so I could be in position before sunrise.

I had this view all to myself, but not for long. Soon, more photographers and other people started arriving to enjoy the view.

Moraine Lake has been on my bucket list for years and I'm so glad I finally got to cross this one off my list!
