palisade falls


In the summer, people drive a ways into the forest and hike just a 1/2 mile to see these falls.  In the winter, if someone has driven down the road to pack down the snow.. another can follow.  We did that and found the massive falls.  Hyalite Canyon is actually famous for ice climbing.  I was surprised to not see some people climbing here.  If you look closely at the bottom right of the ice, you can spot my friend in a grey coat... tiny tiny friend shows the mass of this ice.

What a massive frozen waterfall! It must be some kind of cold.

That's amazing! Thanks so much for trekking out there and sharing it with us. And I agree about your use of the human element to show scale. Nice touch.

Good gravy, that's amazing! I see two people and they DO look teeny. Great perspective
