I coincidentally met up with a couple from my now ended tour. So I had a companion for the walk down to the Lower Falls. Only one of them could make it down and I don't blame her for turning back halfway. The trail did include ten switchbacks. Its not for the lazy, but I was determined to not miss out. The destination is literally at the Lower Falls. There were two large ice packs melting in the river on each side that produces their own waterfalls of melting water.

My last stop on the Falls was Inspiration Point. It should be named "Trips and Falls Point" as the stairs are crumbling. I successfully navigated the marginally difficult stairs and watched as person after person nearly bit it. It's a park, not the mall. You have to watch your step. Funding for the National Park Service has never been a top priority and things will suffer.
