Butte Creek Falls

Lower Butte Creek Falls ©www.hoodphotography.com

Last week I posted about a short hike I took to see two gorgeous waterfalls on Butte Creek. This is Butte Creek Falls (AKA Lower Butte Creek Falls). To access this view we went just beyond the end of the maintained trail to a rocky cliffs edge that towered over the creek hundreds of feet below. I set up my tripod on this precarious ledge and shot the twisting waters of the waterfall crashing down through the foggy forest.
