I was in Ridgecrest and had a few hours to spare... decided to visit. Good to read the history and background before visiting the falls. Interesting formations & chips, but I didn't see any fossils. Careful climbing the formation - dangerous to get to the bottom - I stopped for safety and I have >20 years climbing experience. Rough terrain to dry falls formation... ok for kids >4 or so with some assistance... smaller will need carried much of the way.
