Description

Spirit Falls is a popular 30 ft whitewater kayaking drop, and a very photogenic falls with massive hydraulics boiling up below the falls and the cascades below it. It is not a well known falls at all and take some rugged cross-country hiking to get to, with tripod positions perched precariously inches from a 40 drop to rocks or death-trap rapids. You also have to cover the lens with a cloth and when teh spray mist abates, jerk off the cloth and shoot quickly.
