18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Darwin Falls

Darwin Falls in the desert! The waterfall looks like it was transported from the tropics. A pipe running along the side of the canyon, transports water from the spring that feeds the Panamint Springs Resort. The Falls were named after Dr. Darwin French (1822–1902), a local rancher, miner, and explorer.
