Photographer's Note

August 1, 2005.
Takakkaw falls is the higher second falls of water of Canada. Takakkaw means "splendid" in the Cree language. And this fall is really. The visible part on the photograph is high of almost 258 m. While being to the foot, you are surrounded by a wet fog which moves towards the right side or the left side according to the winds. It is rather impressive. Water is frozen. It comes from the glacier Daly located 350 m above. The rock frontage skirts all the valley at this place. Only cut is this fall, and it is seen thus by far. The noise, as for all the falls is deafening, but less serious than the large falls than I have had the occasion to see in Iceland. The stone drains with the feet of the fall are colonized by squirrels with mante gilded. Those are definitely more apprehensive than those of the Roggers Pass.
