In July 2012, mom, dad, and 12-year-old walked down "The Brink of the Lower Falls," and we just loved it. (MIL and 7-year-old waited at the top for us.) From start to finish, it took us about 45 minutes with short stops and some time spent at the bottom. It was a very steep hike down and, obviously, coming back up involved some work, but it was so worth it. We seen a lot of people huffing and puffing their way back up, but if you bring water and stop for short breaks along the path, it is not too bad at all. I would recommend not trying to go down this with a stroller. We seen some doing this, and they usually just ended up with broken wheels and just carrying the stroller too. My husband and son did better than I did, and I actually sent them on ahead of me so I could rest a few times. (I have a sedentary job and this was an eye opener for me on how deconditioned I am - LOL).
The power of the falls rolling over the edge was amazing and beautiful. The view was breathtaking. You are directly next to the falls and can feel the water splashing up onto you and hear the roar of the water tumbling around and down. (I am going to try to post a few videos, but although the pics and videos are a great reminder of our time here, they do not do the area justice.)
We wanted to be here in the morning to see the rainbow but did not make it in time. However, there was still the rainbow here late morning/early afternoon. Yay!
You could still see some snow piles down in the canyon and could see the steps to Uncle Tom's trail across the way. There are really no words to describe it.
Again, the canyons were my favorite place, and this was my favorite in that area.
