Incessant rain plagued the day; pressed for time, we hiked it anyway, and this is the result. The composition isn't bad, but technical issues, due to the rain, prevented this from being as good as my camera wanted it to be. The rain was coming down so hard, it was impossible to keep the lens dry. After a few minutes of trying, my dry cloth was saturated, as well. As such, there are numerous blurry spots where water had collected on the lens. Not a lot could be done, unfortunately.
On the way back from the falls, we lost the trail and trekked across a moss-covered boulder field. My sense of direction was good; unfortunately, my footing was not. I slipped, and ended up embedding my "rather expensive" Swiss watch into my forearm. Fun. Fortunately, that was the only mishap, and I was able to get to the trail shortly thereafter.
Soaked, cold, and bleeding, we decided to pass on visiting Upper Proxy Falls. Having seen it in the past, anyway, I really didn't feel too badly about this. The watch, my arm, the hypothermia, and the dozen or so botched pictures, however, were all good reason for me to feel less-than-awesome. On the whole, the sheer beauty of this hike/falls outweighed the less-awesome side of the cold rain. Definitely worth seeing, regardless of the weather.
