essay bro:

This place is WAY under-rated.   Battleship Falls is awesome…!!!  The slot canyon above the falls is amazing…!!!  The un-marked trail to the slot canyon is wonderful.  30 foot high Dripping Falls is a special place… as is the spring above that.  It seeps out of a high, sheer wall.  The over-look trail out on top of Battleship Rock is exhilarating…!!!
