Tamanawas Falls by Jeff Hollett

Tamanawas Falls forms a broad curtain of water where Cold Spring Creek thunders over a 110-foot lava cliff near the eastern base of Mount Hood. The waterfall is reduced to a thin veil in late summer and fall, but summer wildflowers and fall colors make the hike up the creek a photo worthy excursion. It’s possible to see the falls in winter, when the spray freezes over and forms a massive ice grotto in the amphitheater, but snowshoes may be required. (Parkdale, Oregon, USA)
