Harris Creek Waterfall

Harris Creek Waterfall

Leaving behind our discovery of the Harris Creek Suspension Bridge we continued on down the road until we found ourselves driving along the creek by a waterfall. So we stopped, got out, and scrambled about on it ;)

Here's another photo of the falls but with the Island Alpinist in it for scale

wild strawberries grew in the rock at my feet

evidence of an old bridge existed in the form of a concrete footing, though the wood had mostly decayed or been washed away

The water was moving quickly through the canyon
