p.1 #1 · Lost and Unfound


Located in the Columbia River Gorge. This is just now popping up on some maps. This is waterfall #4 located on Ruckel Creek. This was an adventure getting to, I won't lie. I am preparing to head back in there in the next few weeks, and to hit the two waterfalls located several miles up creek from here. This falls is referred to as Upper Ruckel Creek Falls I believe. I cannot say how many people visit this a year, but the amount of work to get to this, I doubt not more than 20.

I wouldn't suggest going here without someone who has been here before, seriously. This "easy 2 mile" trek turned into an 11 hour ordeal because neither my buddy nor I had been here before... With that said, I can't wait to go back

Very nice. Sounds like you got lost and missed it? I thought it only happened to me.

saw this one over on G+, liked it there, like it here just as much. If I ever make my big trip to the PNW...I want to hire you as my guide!

I found it, just kinda got lost leaving this area.. :/ Now at least I know how to get out of here exactly.

Thanks everyone for the comments!

Worth the trek. A beautiful image. I would just like to see a little bit more space above the falls - the water seems to almost come out of the frame.

Thanks Barry and Ute! I agree, but i don't know if i have a shot from this vantage with more of a loose crop of the top. Good excuse to go back!

Great tones and lighting on this. I really miss the PNW. Ive only been there twice for two weeks but had a great time hiking both times.

Thanks everyone! I had a job offer at REI, so I get a pretty big discount on rope (well pretty much on everything, lol), so I will be doing rappelling this spring! No waterfall is safe...
