It is really cool that I stopped and snapped this image in the early 90's.
Just proves that they did paddle the Agawa, as that is the only way to get this close to the falls.Photo: A darkened version with a little more contrast added.

one would suspect there are some other landscape paintings of it out in the world someplace.Photo: Water levels can hide many details of some of the paintings.
With the hight levels in 2013 the falls do look much different.

Forest re-growth changes the view from the painting.Photo: You can see the notch they cut out of the canyon wall for the Hydro lines (now gone)
 Also a site of George Agnew Reid, with trees now regrown, and AY Jackson would have painted his Agawa Canyon painting on the scree slope, which would not have been there when he painted.Photo: George Agnew Reid location.Photo: Photo: 1920's post card.
Shows how well the river was still forested was.Photo: Same location, very exciting to look through my lens and see what the 1920's photographer saw.
