Railroad Falls

This was a great find March 13, 2016.

Railroad Falls (in West Railroad Canyon) is a 100’ high tiered waterfall.  This photo below shows the 30’ high upper-most tier.

The second tier starts at the burnt log, showing in the lower right hand corner of the photo above... but the water turns 90° sideways here to drop down the second tier...

Therefore the upper tier cannot be seen in this photo below of the 30’ high second tier.

Two more lower tiers are shown in these next two photos...
