Cliffs Along the Columbia River Gorge

This shot is a typical view of the fog, clouds and seasonal waterfalls that trickle down the steep cliffs edges on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. This photo of an unnamed falls was taken from the Benson State Recreation Area, just west of Multnomah Falls.

Panther Creek Falls

Last week I posted a photo of Panther Creek, which streams thorough the Gifford Pinchot National Forest just north of Carson, Washington. The photo of the creek was taken just upstream from the amazingly breathtaking Panther Creek Falls. The falls are a little known gem in the woods, accessed by a simple drive through the woods and a very short walk down a well maintained, albeit fairly steep trail to a viewing platform. As you can see, there are actually three different waterfalls that drop into the canyon. I was limited on time during this visit, but do plan on going back again soon to hike down to the bottom of the falls for a different vantage point, as it was by far one of the most beautiful places I have visited in recent adventures.
