Vertical/Photo Hunter

Eugenia Falls
Eugenia Falls is a 30-metre ((100-foot) almost vertical drop.  Yep, just about straight down. Luckily there was a concrete wall between me and the falls when I took this photo!

This falls became well known in 1832 during a  gold rush just after a farmer spotted some glittering stones in the canyon. More than 200 hopeful miners rushed in only to discover that "all that glitters is not gold."  They had discovered iron pyrite, fool's gold.

This week's Photo Hunter challenge: vertical

Look at those trees near the edge. They must not be afraid of heights.

That's a bummer for those farmers. I wonder how much they (and their families) invested to find that there was nothing to gain.
