Atop American Falls

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 14 December 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

View looking east toward the top of American Falls before the water takes a 100-foot plunge to the bottom. Algae can be seen clinging to the rocks underwater here. The Rainbow Bridge and Prospect Point Observation Tower are seen in the background. Bridal Veil Falls is behind me at this location.

The algae really creates beautiful color. The water going over the falls just looks so powerful. I can't imagine those people who would go over the falls in a barrel!

It is admirable that despite the speed of water, algae can survive in this place. Nature sometimes likes difficult places to survive.
