As you enter the western half of the Columbia River Gorge, the area gets greener and you begin to see signs for waterfalls. Most are very close to the road. I saw the signs for one fall and took the exit. It looped around to the south frontage road where there was a small parking area right up against the trees. There a trail started that had a waterfall just .3 miles away. I walked a few switchbacks as the trail traversed the steep hill and quickly dropped into a side stream.
The unmistakable sound of a waterfall soon followed and the sound of the interstate faded.
You walk a short way and suddenly you see the falls. They were loud. A mist hung in the air. Even in the drier fall season it was a sight to see.
I made a few images, but found the spray was so much I could not get an image up close. I had to back away and even then, I had to wipe the lens after every shot.
I drove farther down the road and saw a sign for more falls. I again followed the side road and found another little fall, right on the roadside. No hike required.
I made a couple more images there and was soon driving west.
