I’ve been wanting to revisit this place and after borrowing Pancho Doll’s book from the Pine Library it gave me new motivation to make it happen!

I made it out of the canyon okay but my tripod did not share the same luck...
I was photographing a waterfall from a shelf above when the bottom half of my tripod broke and fell to the dark depths directly under the falls.

I made seven valiant attempts to retrieve it diving under the falls reaching in every crack and crevice all while my skull was being pounded by hundreds of gallons of water.

As I was climbing out of the gorge at sunset soaking wet with ringing ears I just looked down to where was and laughed and smiled at the whole situation.
