From there, the landscape and river curved to the southeast and ahead was yet another drop off. Once we got to the edge, we could see that this was indeed The Narrows (2nd photo below). The river again narrowed to a chute of rushing water 50 to 100 yards long. I didn't actually measure it, but it's a good guess. The topo shows 400' almost straight up on one side and just really steep on the other. We weren't sure if we were going to be able to stay at river level at this point and the only other way was up and around and back down. We were very lucky to find that we could semi-safely pass at river level on the left side.
There's a series of nice falls above Wintergreen Falls shown in the shots on the next page - click here to see them!
