Outdoor Plumbing - Part 3
The topmost (barely visible) water in this photo is a portion of Shower Stall Falls peeking out from behind a pointy rock. The previous two photos offer a much better view of Shower Stall Falls. I call this one Drain Falls since it is the drain for the shower stall. All three photos in this series were taken on different days, and under different conditions. I was stalking this place for awhile trying to find the optimal flow for each of the falls. Shower Stall Falls looks best with relatively low water flow. On the day when the slide shown here had lots of water (and looked the best) I didn't even take a photo because all of the other water features were flooded. I was watching on that very rainy day when Shower Stall Falls was suddenly hidden as water surged over the top of the arch (or more likely false arch) to form a new temporary waterfall. At that time the lower drop shown in this photo was completely underwater. The splash pool in the foreground can't drain very quickly because a large boulder in the stream greatly restricts the water flow.
