Umbrella Falls


I was able to get out and about and go on my first real walk on my foot after injuring it 3 weekends ago. What a relief! Sitting at home with my foot propped up until I got my stitches out was a real challenge. But I am on the road to recovery, and rewarded my patience with an evening stroll to Umbrella Falls. This particular waterfall is difficult to photograph in that during the day, it is always in the sun. Ugly sunspots occur, overexposing the delicate water trickles and taking away from its beauty. However, after the sun has gone down behind the trees, you can see Umbrella Falls in a whole new, much more photogenic light.

  1. Well, we have something in common. I had the pins taken out of my foot last week, so I've been nursing a sore foot too. Hoping to be back in action in a couple of weeks.....I hate missing the peak wildflower season. I heard the lupine and beargrass put on quite a show at Umbrella Falls. It's one of my favorite waterfalls. You need to go back there in the fall - the forest around there erupts in an amazing display of color! Use a circular polarizer to make the colors pop.
