Proxy Falls

It starts as a walk in the woods.  Not woods familiar to many of us - this is old growth forest on a lava field.

The trail takes you to an overlook with a break in the trees, allowing Proxy Falls to be seen.  (Apologies are in order.  These were shot straight into the sun.  I had three options - move the sun to the north instead of the south, turn the mountain to the south, or work with photoshop to try to cut out the sun glare.  Guess which I chose.)

First, the falls.

The sparkle at the top was like watching diamonds.

Now, frame the falls with the forest around them.

The base of the falls was hard to get to, but rewarding.

Well worth the effort, I think.
