Falling River

Photograph by Rennis Kauffman, National Geographic Your Shot

A tight angle captures the McCloud River falling in tiers to an unseen swimming hole below. The Middle McCloud Falls are one of three on the clear, chilly river in northern California's Shasta-Trinity National Forest. From an overlook at the Middle Falls, visitors can take in Mount Shasta and Castle Crags among other natural features.

It looks more like falling mist, just as powerful all the same. The green trees in the background are a perfect foil for the picture. One more shot to be enjoyed.And added to the books.  j.e.s........
