Benham Falls

Benham Falls, Deschutes National Forest, Bend Oregon

I was out in Central Oregon this past weekend visiting family. On Saturday, we all piled in the car and drove out a bit west of Bend to the popular Deschutes River Trail recreation area. There we visited Benham Falls. The short stroll down to a viewing area was packed with people, but I did not get discouraged. Not to be one to settle for the "shot from the platform", my Dad, my brother and I walked a bit farther down the designated trail and then veered off into the woods to reach the river. From there, I climbed up a rocky area and leaned against a tree, set up my tripod and did my best to capture the water below and around me.
