The climb around Jackie Falls (dropping
into its narrow gorge, in the foreground) revealed Steve Falls
(background), the last of eight waterfalls discovered by Maynard
Drawson, Steve Falls is a graceful cascade that drops 55 feet
into Henline Canyon. Matthew and Ted ventured closer to the falls,
and their tiny outlines can be seen to the left of the huge green
log at the base of the falls, just above the lowest hemlock bough
in this image.
this final vantage point, it was also clear that the magnitude
of Jackie Falls must increase dramatically when stream flow is
higher -- a second channel of the falls is visible in the lower
foreground of this view (where the rock is polished and free
of moss) and a third channel appears to the right, at the edge
of this photo. These must combine for a spectacular sight in
early spring, as all three segments pour side-by-side into the
narrow cavern that contains Jackie Falls!
