Searching for Waterfalls

The day after our failed camping trip, we were looking for something fun to do.  So we decided to try and find Pinchi Falls.  2 years ago, we went out looking for these falls and came back empty handed.  But today, we felt successful (ok, the air photos on Bing Maps gave us some ideas of where to look).

Walking down the 'road', following the gps to a potential waterfall location.  The Subaru got stopped by some big ruts near the start of the road.

Still walking and searching....

White Water Found!  Yay!

 Ok, so it's only a little waterfall.....  but it's a lot bigger than what we found 2 years ago. 
 Hmmmm.....   What's around the bend?  Guess we should keep exploring.

We Found It! 

Now this is a real waterfall!

We made it!  Sweet!

 Rainbow in the mist.

What a great view.

We managed to scramble down to the bottom.

View from the bottom.

Let's go swimming.

 Swimming at the base of the waterfall :)  What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Mark out in the pool, testing the waters and rope.

Yes, we tied a safety rope to help prevent us from floating 300 m downstream through rapids.  

Yay!  I'm swimming at the waterfalls :)

What a great afternoon.
