Waterfalls- Burney Falls, A never ending flow


Burney is a small town in northern California. It is popular for the McArther-Burney memorial state park. The centerpiece of the park is an ever flowing waterfalls. This 129ft waterfalls is fed by underground springs and has water even in dry summers. (Info from Wiki) The waterfalls was called eighth wonder of the world by then President of United States Theodore Roosevelt. It is declared as National Natural Landmark.

It is a nice picnic spot. Clear blue water is great for swimming. Visit any time of the year and this waterfalls is always flowing in its full glory!

I was going through a book on Ansel Adams Photography and so inspired by it turned the picture to B&W.
