Just a few photos from a quick trip to see the rapids at Rumbling Gorge. The gorge was impressive enough (especially the section nearest the road on the north bank) - dark, lush and very humid as the sun came out following earlier rain. But the unexpected highlight was the amazing variety of (sometimes very smelly!) fungus.

The bridge at the far east end is down, so the route below isn't quite accurate.
