Bridal Veil Falls is a 607-foot tall double cataract waterfall in the south end of Provo Canyon, in Utah, United States. An aerial tramway service to the top of the falls was built in 1967 and the small, six-passenger tramway functioned as a recreational attraction and as the only access (except via helicopter) to a restaurant built by Groneman Construction situated on a cliff at the top of the falls until an avalanche destroyed the tram in early 1996. (This was the second major avalanche to destroy the tram. The tram and visitor center was rebuilt after the first avalanche, but after the second disaster, its ruins were left there. In July 2008, a fire burned the ruins, and very little remains. When the tramway was in operation prior to the 1996 avalanche, it was heralded as the "world's steepest aerial tramway

Unchained Bridal veil is a perfect name for this wonderful water fall. Lovely set, Tom! We have on Madeira Island also a water fall with this very same name (only a smaller one, haha).

BuffyEyes There is also a waterfall in Niagara Falls, NY/Canada called Bridal Veil Falls. The shape and the translucense of the water shirley depicts where it got its name from.
