“Fairy Falls” - Columbia River Gorge - Oregon
Flatlanders beware! It was about a mile from the trailhead to the falls, with an elevation change equal to the height of the Empire State Building. My location/shooting guide warned me this would be a challenge, but of course I didn’t listen thinking only of the distance. Looking back, the hike was a grind for someone my age (60 at the time) but as you can see here, it was worth every bit of the effort required. Fairy Falls is only 20’ in height, and certainly makes up for it’s lack of height with an amazing cascade rarely seen in nature.
