Description

Palisades Falls is a beautiful 80 foot waterfall reached by walking through towering Engelmann Spruce and Red Fir. Palisades Falls is the result of a prehistoric lava flow, complete with massive hexagonal basalt columns similar to those found at the Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland and other locations around the world. Rather than post the usual shot of the main falls I opted for including this area with "The" falls in the background(about 50 yards). Besides being a more appealing composition I loved the assortment of basalt rocks in this slide area.
