The Top of Avalanche Falls

July 24, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

It was one of the days of the recent heat wave we had and it was almost too hot to do anything, except go to The Flume Gorge, where it's a good 15-20 degrees cooler on average.

I got there right at about sunset, when the light was getting good. It's a bit of a walk up to where the actual gorge is, especially in the heat, but I could feel the coolness coming with every step. 

It's a really cool place to check out, from my understandings it was carved out by lava from an ancient volcano, until the ice age hit and glaciers covered the lands, which when they melted turned it into a water path, where once scorching hot lava use to flow. It's rather amazing, and beautiful.

 

This here is the top part of the largest waterfall there called Avalanche Falls.
