I doubt we would have experienced this unless a local had taken us. I will always remember the huge drop into the canyon and the roar of the falls! What made it unique was seeing a helicopter rescue.

There was a very pretty little park near the dam. Nice grassy area to have a picnic on a sunny day. Walk down a short hill to get a better view of the pounding waters.

For those who have never seen one, a Dam stops water. And this Dam doesn't disappoint. There was lots of water. Quite a diverse population of birds. Got some good pictures of humming birds and Eagles. There's a nice view of the mountains. Also lots...More

Quite spectacular to see the "Falls" from standing and looking from above. A nice parklike area with a good view of the "Lions Gate" mountain.

I believe there are some bus stops but I too had a rental car, it's literally 4 minutes from the bridge, but what a sight. I think a taxi can take you there, it's truly on the same road 4-5 minutes
