A few miles up river are the middle falls. Though smaller than the other falls, they were still impressive. What was interesting was that I could walk right up to the falls and touch the wall where the water flowed and not get very wet.
The upper falls were a few miles further up river. But we discovered that the hiking trail to these falls was a bit more challenging than the trails to the other two. The trail was washed out in places so we had to hike up to the road and then drop down back to the trail once we reached the level of the falls. The upper falls were much more private as it was hard to reach. I let my curiosity get the best of me and hiked back on the trail even though it was closed. It wasn't bad until the very end where we had to scramble over some washed out areas.
When we weren't hiking, we spent time with Julie, Willie and Jordan, playing in the river, eating at our campsite and sitting around the fire.
