Burney Falls California America

Burney Falls
Burney Falls is one of the largest waterfalls in California by sheer scale, but more prominently it is one of the most unique waterfalls in the whole state - if not the most unique. Burney Creek drains from volcanic highlands northwest of Mount Lassen, much of it featuring porous bedrock where precipitation can easily sink into the ground. While plenty of water remains in surface-level Burney Creek, a significant aquafir exists beneath the surface. Shortly before merging with the Pit River in Lake Britton, Burney Creek hurtles 114 feet over a cliff in twin channels, thundering into a large pool. The water comes from underground springs above and at the falls, which are 129 feet high, and provides an almost constant flow rate of 100 million US gallons per day , even during the dry summer months.The falls are an example of river drainage regulated by stratigraphically-controlled springs, and also of a waterfall formed by undercutting of horizontal strata.The falls were called "the Eighth Wonder of the World" by President Theodore Roosevelt, and were declared a National Natural Landmark in December 1984.
