Salmon River Gorge March 1983 Expedition Split Falls

Another view of the twin cataracts of Split Falls from the top of a cliff on the north side of the falls. In this photo, some of the massive, house-sized boulders that are typical of the Salmon River Gorge, can be seen to the right of the falls. These 30 foot blocks of basalt have dropped hundreds of feet from the canyon walls, eventually resting at the bottom of the Salmon River Gorge, where even the force of river can barely move them.
