essay bro:

The information for this page has been provided by Andrew Monie.  Here are some excerpts from his field notes: 

There's a 2nd falls above the one pictured and a little box canyon between the two. You can see up into the box a bit in the photo, but we found it to be completely inaccessible.  It would take serious rock climbing or a rappel to access this box. There were also Canyon Tree Frogs there.
