Johnston Canyon Part 2

This post will be short on words and long on photos,so tie up those hiking boots and let's walk to the Lower Falls at Johnston Canyon.
Just enjoy the scenery.









Kai ,taking it all in.


Posing for a photo.


Carful,don't bump your head on that overhang.




The Lower Falls are in sight.

Even a rainbow for our enjoyment.

To properly view the Lower Falls we have to walk through a rock tunnel/cave.Since there were so many people,we had to wait our turn.

From inside the tunnel we can already see the falls and feel the mist.


We have now walked 1.1 km or .683 miles. The falls are 20 metres or 65 1/2 feet high.

 The sound and feeling the mist is an amazing experience.


Closing Thought:
Creation is filled with signs that point to the Creator.
(In my mind this is one of those signs.)

  17. Hi Ruth, Once again a beautiful set of photos. The scenes here remind me so much of my favorite spot on earth ... Yellowstone National Park. The falls are similar too! Thank you for sharing your trip with us. Also, love the closing thought and agree with you in the tiny print at very end. :-)
