This ain’t no creek bed.
But on a recent backpacking trip we discovered there wasn’t a drop of water to be found.
Fortunately, the falls had a trickle of water. The source of this water is a cave. The water plunges more than 100 feet, then drops into another cave.
So how much water is normally in the river? Well, even in late summer there’s usually plenty of water. To give just an idea of that, the spot where I took this photo is a swimming hole, complete with rope swing.
