It is always a joy to see the canyon in any season; in the winter, the snow is especially beautiful.

Be sure to hike down to the platform at the top of the falls. It is AWESOME. It’s a decent way down and back up, but not all that strenuous and so amazing to stand where all that raw power is cascading over every second.

I was amazed by the size and beauty of this place. Hike down to the brink of the upper falls after you take a look around the top. Evening or mornings before 10 AM are the best, less crowded times to go.
