Does anyone have pictures or video of the falls this year? We're past peak runoff and that seems like one of the most impressive cascades in the sierra. Thanks

Beyond down in French Canyon below those cascades, it is still a vast snowfield on the latest satellite image including lakes on the bench fishermen pack into. So not much reason for backpackers to visit. I backpacked into nearby L Lake last summer and had a good look at it. I tried to line it up with a telephoto with Royce Peak behind but the result simply doesn't have strong elements. In that zone, much better is the big cascade on the Pine Creek Trail below Pine Lake with The Wizard's Castle behind it.
