Last time we were at Upper Butte Creek Falls, we didn't make it to the second falls just below the falls. Minnie led the way this time.

The red color on the berries of this plant were beautiful, but thorns on the stalk, upper and under sides of the leaf were enough to keep from looking closer.

We were quite surprised when we rounded the corner to the falls.

We went from a thunderous wall of water dumping over the ledge,

to a trickle dropping 22 ft. to the pool below.

It was now possible to walk behind the falls and look out.

Despite the heat, it was a really beautiful day.
