Hedge Creek Frozen Falls

Hedge Creek Falls in beautiful Dunsmuir California is an easy spot to visit, and rewards visitors with a fantastic opportunity to hike behind the falls. This late afternoon we braved the sub-freezing temps to view what was completely amazing. The falls mist had created a layer of 1-4 inch thick ice all around the falls. The photo here was taken at the far back of the cave and walking on the frozen cave mud was something I will never forget. We photographed the scene for far to long and ended up hiking out in the pitch black. Before we left, we heard what sounded like falling rocks (it's really loud behind a waterfall), so we made a quick exit. However, this view will stick in my mind for a long, long time.
