Kinuseo Falls and Murray River

A long predawn exposure of the Murray River with Kinuseo Falls plunging down 70m (229 ft) with Castle Mountain in the distance. First documented on a western map in 1906, Samuel Prescott Fay provided the first description of the falls in 1914 as part of a scientific expedition. He named the falls “Kinuseo”, which was fish in the native Cree language, due to the abundance of trout he observed above and below the falls. A second expedition in 1927 recorded “Kapaca Tignapy” as a traditional Cree name for the falls translating as “falling water”. Monkman Provincial Park, Northern Rockies, British Columbia, Canada.
