The Face in Moulton Falls

I was looking to leave the Mt Hood area for a day trip and found Moulton Falls online. When I decided to travel about 20 minutes west of Battle Ground, Washington, I was not sure what to expect from the waterfall I had read about. Upon my arrival at the park, I had a bit of an adventure navigating the volcanic rock formations along the Lewis River to find a decent vantage point in which to take a photo of the falls. I finally settled on a perch on a rock that poked out somewhat above the crazy canyon that the water violently flows through and snapped away. Let me tell you, it is an experience and a sight to be had.

Upon getting home and uploading the photo, I noticed that the rock in the center of the turbulent water resembles a lions face. Do you see it?

Lewis River Reflections

I love venturing outside of my regular Mt Hood area and finding unique, beautiful locations. This place definitely did not disappoint. Wow. It is SO pretty at Moulton Falls Park. Located about 15 miles outside of Battle Ground, Washington, the 387 acre park is amazing! The lush wilderness runs along the Lewis River, and the leaves are just starting to change. Once you reach the river, you come to this gorgeous footbridge crossing. I took the approximately 10 second long exposure to show how slow the water travels along this stretch of river. However, about 1/4 mile downstream is the very violent Moulton Falls, which I will post later this week. Visit if you can, because it is so worth it.
