We stopped for a stretch and to swap bikes. I was removing my gear to lower the seat on my RS for wade when an oldster on one of those NRC spyder a pulled in and asked if we needed help, we got to talking and he gave us about a week of trips we could take in the area.

through narrow channels. Heading back
up, we stopped to put some marking tape on a tree indicating that the falls are
to the right, and then made the hike back up.
