About this Waterfall

Even though this spot can hardly be considered a waterfall, the site is quite pretty and lots of fun to walk around. The wide Mississippi River flows under the road bridge and soon breaks into numerous narrow, shallow channels that are separated by a number of little forested bedrock islands.

There really is no "main" waterfall at this site, and I found it difficult to find a prime subject for a photograph. This is not a problem however, since the whole site is interesting to explore. There are also other falls on the far side of the bridge, on the left side of the road. If you scramble down the hill you will find two little waterfalls, steeper than any of the main rapids on the other side of the bridge
