KAHCHOOMAH FALL.

From Piwyac to the Nevada Fall, a distance of a mile, the river descends two hundred and fifty-five feet, rushing swiftly down, with numerous cascades, over smooth rocks, showing glacial polish in many places. About half-way between them is the Kahchoomah or Wild Cat Fall, 30 feet high. There is also a small lake, a couple of hundred feet wide. The photograph was taken just below the fall.
