…I once again visited the lower falls on my way back out — and the ambient lighting was significantly different this time, as the sky became overcast.
I descended into the canyon and decided to cross the footbridge…
…and crouch my way through the wet and narrow tunnel to get onto the platform on the other side and view the lower falls. Upon approaching the tunnel, the wind blowing through it seemed to immediately lower the ambient temperature by at least 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
Watch your step when going through the tunnel, as the uneven wet rock floor can be quite slippery and the wind can be rather strong when it is compressed through the tunnel.
This photograph was shot quickly, as the spray was bombarding me to the point where I was drenched.
A small crowd of people approaching this otherwise tranquil spot gave me the indication that the time had come for me to leave the lower falls area.
I looked back one more time on the footbridge I just crossed before I left Johnston Canyon.
At least one additional future article will feature photographs of the upper falls of Johnston Canyon.
