July through September, 2012

We all took the hike down Uncle Tom's Trail to view the lower falls from a lower and closer vantage point than most tourists get. There is usually a rainbow in the spray from the falls. This “hike” involves switchbacks and 328 stair steps adding up to 500 feet of vertical descent; the trail is at an altitude of 8,000 feet and flat-landers usually regret having made the trip as they trudge back up!
