Hike To Whitney Canyon Falls

Today my friend Linda and I hiked to the Whitney Canyon falls. After the freak snow we had last week, the creek and falls are really flowing. This creek and these falls do not flow year-round. I have been up there when there is water and also when it is bone dry. They hike is only good when the water is flowing.
These falls have about 6 tiers. I had never hiked up to the high level tiers because I was usually by myself and didn't want to risk climbing the rocks and possibly falling and no one being their to help me. Today we got to go up to about the 4th tier and we could see the other tiers higher up.
There was actually still a little snow on the ground at some of the high elevations.
Linda is new to hiking, so she is really enjoying the places I am taking her. She said so far she enjoyed this hike the most.
I took several still photos during this hike and also made a video of the falls.
