Spring runoff makes the falls roar.
An Abert's squirrel forages for food on a spring morning.
Standing at the top of Lower Falls on a windy day is a good way to get wet.
Stinging nettles are not nice to touch but are beautiful swaying in the breeze accompanied by the sounds of the creek.
The 80 ft tall falls somehow seem shorter close up but the roar of the falls highlights the drop.
Frijoles Creek flows from high in the Jemez Mountains over two waterfalls to add its bounty to the Rio Grande.
