This is a very pretty spot. There were hardly any people there. The grounds were pristine. The falls were spectacular. It was well worth it.

Surprised us how forceful the water was. Higher than Niagara Falls. Water so clear. Awesome photos. I guess it can freeze but not every winter. Just gorgeous setting against sun and blue sky!!

Yes, you should be able to take a good photo of nearly the entire falls from one of the look off points.
