Salmon River Gorge March 1983 Expedition Split Falls

At river level, Split Falls is a noisy, wet experience. In this view, the basalt island that splits the river into separate channels is visible, with hemlock and Western red cedar growing on the island. For a sense of scale, the logs in the right falls are roughly 3 feet in diameter. The lens flare in this picture is not the result of sun reflecting in the camera, but rather the bright white surface of the river as it foams over Split Falls.
