I believe by the photos, that the Bridge Boof IV Rapids may also be the same as Hidden Falls

Fat Lady is located in the section below the Independence River Falls. The photos are included under the Independence River Falls.

The Wall IV Rapids and the Independence river (falls on) are located downstream from the bridge. I firmly believe I had viewed the latter from the other road, as can see by the tracking.
