Forceful

Once at the top of Vernal Falls, there was another trail that continued on to Nevada Fall. That is what feeds/merges with Vernal Falls. This part of the fall flows so rapidly that I doubt you could stop yourself if you fell in. It dumps into Emerald Pool which then flows right over Vernal Fall. Have I confused you? Either way, it may look so peaceful but it is amazingly forceful.

You're absolutely correct! We have read of many people who have fallen in and drown over the years.
One just can't believe how fast that water flows unless you've seen it!

Can you imagine getting swept up in that water? Wow, that's gotta be powerful!!

I think the picture captures quite well "forceful". It's all whitewater and fast looking. Sure looks like a beautiful area though.
