It has poured rain here for nearly 72 straight hours. Roughly 100mm of the wet stuff has fallen, and as a result the rivers and streams in the area are about ready to burst their banks.
Whenever this happens the falls at Kakabeka become a very busy place. From photographers, to videographers, to gawkers simply wanting a glimpse at the raw power of mother nature. Yesterday I jumped in my truck, and made the 20km trek West of Thunder Bay, to Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park and joined that crowd.
Once again the falls didn’t disappoint. Although a few of the lookout areas were closed, I was still able to get a nice look at what can be described as nothing short of amazing.
On days like yesterday these signs are no joke
the noise of the water and the speed it was moving is nothing short of mind boggling
sadly, one of the best lookout decks was closed
regardless the sight and sounds were worth the trip
The sun is out now, and in a few days the water flow will return to normal, and mother nature will go about her business as usual.
Although I normally don’t take video, I figured this was a worthy exception.
