Nice Summer Hangout

Great swimming hole. Check this one out for a summer spot. We strung up some hammocks nearby and made a few hours out of it!


Gorgeous scenery. Like an oasis from reality!

Fun Swimming Hole in the Summer

A friend and I ate out on the rocks and sunbathed for an hour before continuing on to photograph the falls
