5-31 Eden Falls and the Glory Hole

The last day of our float trip. Daniel, Papa and I left early to head over to Eden Falls and the Glory Hole. I have been coming to this area for 35+ years.  I have driven by the entrance hundreds of times. Yet I have never been to Eden Falls.

Eden Falls
Even though there isn't much water, this is a beautiful waterfall.  Lots of character. (1/4 sec, f-11, ISO800)

Daniel sure loves climbing on the rocks. (1/6 sec, f-11, ISO800)

Eden Falls
At low flow, you get MORE waterfalls! (1/4 sec, f-11, ISO800)

The light was perfect.  (1/8 sec, f-11, ISO800)

In this one you can see the middle portion of the falls.  (1/8 sec, f-11, ISO800)

I cropped this one to emphasize the tall, skinny trees and the height of the waterfall. (1/8 sec, f-11, ISO800)

Glory Hole
This is the top of the Glory Hole.  It is a real easy hike down to it.  The hike out, on the other hand.....(1/5 sec, f-11, ISO200)

Glory Hole
And this is the bottom of the Glory Hole.  What a fascinating place. (20 sec, f-22, ISO200)

Just to give you an idea of how far the hole is from the edge of the bluff. (20 sec, f-22, ISO200)

Glory Hole
Looking up through the Glory HoleI really liked how the spray lit up.(0.3 sec, f-14, ISO1600)

It was a great weekend.  We counted up that we saw 33 waterfalls in four days.  Of course we were counting Triple Falls as three waterfalls, times 3 visits.  Still, you get the idea.
