Lolo Pass Waterfalls


Todays Watery Wednesday submission is an old picture I took about 5 years ago. There are a set of waterfalls up off Lolo Pass Road, which goes all the way from the small town of ZigZag (where I grew up) to Hood River in the Columbia River Gorge. Off the side of the road is a creek, and if you follow the creek up the hill a ways, there is a large, hidden waterfall. You can walk behind the waterfall, and that is where this picture was taken. This is the view of the falls from behind. You can see the sun and trees through the falling water. I did post a picture of these falls in the winter earlier this year.

What a cool photo! Now I'm wondering when can I get down to that area. :-) I love photographing waterfalls myself and posted one for this theme.

I missed the name of the falls. Wee're talking about two different places. Anyway, the ice one was amazing. You can walk behind Silver Creek Falls, too. Maybe you've been there.
