Next on our tour of the Lava Beds are the water falls that dot the river that flows over the lava. First, the water, it is green in colour were there are ponds and slow flowing streams. Some of the water falls themselves are quite fast flowing, despite their size. And I should apologize about the names, I just forgot what water fall is which. I will need to consult my girlfriend when she reads this post as to what each body of water is called.
Like I said: green. Although the water is very clear, I think becuase of all the minerals from the lava, the water tints green.
The above falls, I think is called the Vetter Falls. Again, like I said, I much with my girl friend on these. Sadly, this was a close as we could to this water fall. The Park built a viewing platform that we could stand one to view the falls.
The above two images are the smaller water fall, just a few kms down stream from the larger water falls. And like the previous spot we went to, there was a viewing platform also to stand on to watch the water at a safe distance. I used a telephoto (300mm) lens to capture these.
The last image is the river flowing over the lava beds. Amazing how clear the water is here – pure mountain water.
ADDED (June 23, 2016): “Oops… guess I’ve been delinquent on reading the posts 🙂 The green waters was part of Ross Lake, the big waterfall was Beaupre Falls, and the shorter ones were Vetter Falls.”
