Montezuma Waterfalls

Written By: Gary on December 2, 2007 2 Comments

montezuma fallsSaturday, I did the (mostly easy) hike to the bottom of the main Montezuma Waterfalls. Then I did the even longer steeper climb to the top of falls and to see the other falls that are way up there. This is where we almost lost Mark (as in “over the edge”) a few times on the last trip.

This was a chunk of the day since after getting there I spent some time at the lower, upper and back and the lower again. I also got to test my new PacSafe lockable backpack (see my other post from slightly earlier today) as I left my stuff (camera, video camera, keys, etc.) locked to a tree.

I’ve got photos posted of the waterfalls and a few other shots (see set 4 for the latest as of this writing), Again, I’ve (mostly) got titles and captions. I’ve noticed a bit of my photos are kind of dark lately but I can’t figure out if it’s the lighting or something odd set on my camera.

    SO SO BEAUTIFUL! What is the air like around a waterfall like that? Is it misty and warm? Or cool?

    Mostly warm, if in the sun. But since you’re kinda in a valley up there you’re in the shade a bit.

    The air pressure is odd (pulsating) up there. I can stand under the waterfalls, with the water pouring down on me and pushing my swimsuit against me, but the air pressure is so high from the water hitting the pond the air wins out and billows my swimsuit out (like a marilyn monroe thing). It’s actually a little hard to breathe, no real problem but you can definitely feel it.
