The search for 19 year old Aleh Kalman, who went over Nevada Fall, has been suspended. Rough water on the Merced below the 600 ft fall made it impossible to located his body. When the spring run off subsides, recovery operations will resume. Kalman was part of an 85 person church group that was hiking that day.
The answer to my little quiz on the smallest waterfall was an easy one for over 20 respondents. It’s call the Fern Spring. You can see it on the right, just after you enter the park and travel on Southside Dr. It its peak, it’s about 10 inches.
