Gibbon River in the Sun – On the road between Norris Junction and Canyon Junction is a turn-off to the road leading to Virginia Cascades. Virginia Cascades is a geologic feature where the Gibbon River flows over a steep rock formation. A cascade is not a waterfall in that the flow of the water stays in contact with the rock rather than freefalling. As one can imagine, the cascade is pretty neat and not at all peaceful. However, just a few hundred yards upstream where the topography is much more level, the Gibbon makes a much more leisurely journey through a meadow.
