The view from the parking lot, elevation around 40 ft above sea level, we'll be heading to the top of the waterfall and back up the mountain. On the way up you traverse many, many switchbacks to climb the elevation. The first half hour was just climbing to the top.
As I said, many switchbacks. With there being so many people there for a casual visit I suppose this gives them a better perspective on what they're getting into, I called them rude names all the way up. As it turned out, switchback 9 was the crest of the climb with 10 and 11 going down on the other side to get to the viewpoint.
The Dutchman tunnel which was not really a tunnel, the rock was worn back near the bottom where the trail is and curls over our heads as we passed this stretch. A bit disappointed the side washed out but Jay is looking very impressed with a look that asks why I'm stopping yet again. Note the fabulous trail conditions up here, mud with a side of water and rock.
