Helmcken Falls in October 10.jpg

Clearwater, BC, Canada view map

This Gigapan stretched the limits of the system in several ways: The height of the tripod could have been about a foot taller to clear the railing at the lookout.
Setting the horizontal ref point was difficult because of the depth of the view downwards into the gorge.
The batteries were not giving their full power output because of the freezing temps.

The falls is about 460 feet high, one of the most spectacular in the world. Here's a view of it during full flood in the spring:
