Fall Creek Falls

The snow and ice has disappeared early this year, but the countryside hasn't started to green up yet along the Snake River near Swan Valley, Idaho.
Just a couple of miles off the main road, Fall Creek drops off a cliff into the Snake River.  Fishermen have the best view as they drift down the Snake in their fishing boats.
Anywhere else, these falls would be a tourist attraction with trails, guard rails, parking lots, and souvenirs.  They are totally undeveloped.  There are no signs to help you find the place, and you need to be careful around the unprotected cliff edge.
The view from the cliff is largely obscured by brush and trees, so it takes some effort around the top of the cliff to get a decent photo.  Morning light would probably be best to photograph spectacular Fall Creek Falls.
