This is the sign welcoming visitors to Nooksack Falls. Apparently, many people have lost their lives here by slipping and falling either over the falls or onto the boulders below and being swept away by the whitewater. You MUST enlarge this photo and read what it says about taking photographs!
It's definitely a rainforest area as you can see from the massive evergreen trees dripping with moss.
We crossed over the bridge just before the falls and on one side you can see the river winding its way through the rocks and boulders and on the other side you can see a brilliant blue pool, very calm just before it drops over the cliff.
I then traversed the trail, carefully planting my feet over the twisted roots and lowered myself over huge boulders to get to the viewing area - thankfully fenced.
I couldn't even see where the Falls landed at the bottom, so I turned to my right to take a shot of the gorge. I also carefully moved further down to where there was no fence to try to take a few shots right below me. As I was doing this, I was holding onto a tree for balance!
Finally, just to show the contrast between one side and the other:
