|Aguasabon Falls is located just west of Terrace Bay, Ontario.
Left and below: fireweed and elderberries.
|Left: mouth of Aguasabon River.
Below: looking downstream from the footbridge (visible in the photo above). The rocks are all Archean granitic and metamorphic rocks.
|Aguasabon Falls is reached via a short spur road a few kilometers
west of Terrace Bay, then a boardwalk to an overlook. At left is a view
of the Slate Islands, a Paleozoic impact site, from the overlook.
Below: the falls drops into a narrow cleft eroded along a joint.
|Left: frontal views of the falls are only visible from the gorge edge. Was it really worth it to paint that graffiti on the cliff right of the falls?|
|Full views of the falls are not easy to come by.|
|The stream flows into a pothole before dropping over the cliff.|
