"High" Falls

Are you waterfall-ed out yet? I have been posting a lot of waterfall photos lately, but it is because, to me, it is waterfall season. I tend to hit up the Columbia River Gorge a lot in winter because it is so beautiful and often times much easier to access than the mountain with it unpredictable snowfall.

This is another waterfall seen on my recent hike up Tanner Creek. I could not find a name for these falls, so I dubbed them "High Falls". I am so very creative, right? But they were very high, way up in the treeline, and we could not even see the bottom of the falls from our vantage point, but I know they had to have fallen all the way to the creek below, which is still a good distance below where this picture was taken.

"Whispy" Falls

Sorry about my lack of posts so far this week. I was not able to get out this past weekend so I have nothing brand new, but I have a couple of left over photos from a few weekends agos hike along Tanner Creek to share with you though.

The first is this one, of what I dubbed "Whispy Falls". Despite my efforts, I was unable to find a name for this apparently seasonal waterfall. It falls just north of Wahclella Falls, which I posted about last week. The water almost mists down, dramatically cooling the air around you.
