Heading up Marble Canyon 2

Higher Plane / Ian Tamblyn

Marble Canyon

Marble Canyon is not a long nor difficult hike.
There is a bit of uphill at times – mostly stairs.

It takes about an hour to get to the Falls.
A hiking stick is useful – water and snacks.
Looking up the Canyon …

I discovered this is called Tokumm Creek.
Our timing was perfect. In the Spring the water
is a murky grey colour from winter run off.
Now it’s a clear beautiful turquoise.

Looking back down …Vermilion Peak
