Helmcken Falls - Same old picture!
Every picture I see of Helmcken falls looks exactly the same. And I figured out why when I got there. There's one decent viewing area for the falls and a couple obstructed by trees. I am told there is a trail leading to the river below the falls, but it is a four hour trip each way and the one photo I've seen from that location is obstructed. I'm quite convinced that I didn't turn my ND filter up high enough on this one and would have been interested to see more silky water. // Helmcken is the fourth highest waterfall in Canada - I got to see the second highest, Takakkaw Falls earlier in the summer and again later in this trip. It's quite the tour bus destination - in fact, the provincial government has paved the road through Wells Grey Park only up to the point of these falls. Handy to deter people away from Clearwater Lake and maintain its tranquility!
