Kennedy River Cascade #2
View From the Top
The river narrows just at the top before it flows down over the waterfall into the canyon below. With a bit of wading it should be easy to cross to the other side and get some different angles and possibly better views of the entire waterfall.
Another view of the narrow canyon at the base of the falls, the main drop is hidden behind several huge rocks. This smooth face is likely covered with water during peak flows.
Large rocks lie jumbled in the water just downstream of the falls.
Slow, Deep Green
Slow, deep water and steep cliffs lie just downstream of the waterfall, the clear green water looks perfect for swimming.
Another view of the top part of the falls before it flows over the drop.
The main chute of this falls takes a hard left hand twist at the bottom before entering the deeper and calmer water of the main canyon.
The Big Drop
Looking down toward the base of the waterfall and the narrow canyon below. It was hard to get a decent angle from this side to see the full falls and a little too deep upstream to cross over and photograph it from the other side.
Looking back toward the upper part of the waterfall as it splits around rocks before descending down through the narrow chute.
Go with the Flow
At the top of the falls, the water curves around smooth white rocks before dropping down a twisting chute.

Bowls and Water
Detail of the bowls just above the main channel in the sandstone on the Oyster River.
Water seeks out the easiest passage through the sandstone, cutting two channels in the rock.
Many small bowls on the upper part of the sandstone formation on the Oyster River.
