Located at River Mile 116.5, Elve's Chasm is a refreshing stop with a quick hike up to this slot canyon where one can swim, climb, and jump into the crystal clear pool. With shadows moving quickly and covering the swimming area, I was forced to over-expose the downstream view in order to get a good image of the waterfall. Several members of our party climbed above this falls to explore the beautiful side canyon further while I shot this GigaPan. The water is plenty cold in April, but very nice until my jump from the falls landed way too flat with a smack to my rear end. It had been a long time since my backside stung so badly. Grand Canyon GigaView is a new school virtual tour of the Grand Canyon created with a collection of GigaPan images taken on a private rafting trip in April 2010 and geolocated in Google Earth.
