Below; Then the two RV Gypsies hiked to another viewing area called Chimney View Overlook, the first point on the trail where the lower falls can be seen. It offered an excellent chance to photograph both the upper and lower falls. The overlook is named for the chimney-like outcroppings located to the right of the waterfall. The trail was strenuous in this area with considerable elevation gain.

Below: From here, the two RV Gypsies could barely see the upper falls and where it "pools". But they saw the lower falls as it reappeared through the cliffs.

The two RV Gypsies spent a bit of time just relaxing and enjoying the weather and the view before they hiked back to their truck.
