Photographer's Note

At the top of the Salt River Canyon lies an abandoned resort on the San Carlos Apache Reservation. One of the attractions of the resort was Seneca Falls, a seasonal falls that flows with snow melt and summer monsoon rains. As we've had some of the latter, there are two pools below the falls and some seepage through the rocks as the land above continues to drain even though the creek isn't flowing.

The drop may not look impressive in this photo, but from the lip of the falls to the highest pool is a distance of about 250 feet (80 m). You'll get a better sense of the proportions in one of the workshops as I captured an Apache tribe member on the edge of the escarpment.

A bit later I spoke with him and he indicated there's a trail that leads to the highest pool. Some online information also says that the trail has a large number of large poison ivy bushes. Maybe I'll consider it ... next time.

The other bit I read is that the falls are supposed to be stunning in the winter as they become ice falls that melt and reform on a daily basis.
