Doesn't even look like the same place! Very scary! Gotta believe though that somebody will/has tried!

Thanks for sharing that photo!

I love the composition; framing of the chasm by the foliage really makes for a compelling pic...

advocate, but this goes to prove that a stream of awesome water can be just as thrilling as a snow-capped mountain peak.

Brilliant capture, Kathy !!!
