Well,…hiking to Wahclella Falls had been the plan, based on information such as:
“If you were designing a landscape just for waterfalls, you would end up with something not unlike the Columbia River Gorge. Dozens of waterfalls spill from the basalt cliffs in this region. The abundance of water creates mossy natural retreats that could not be matched even if you were designing a landscape from scratch.
“…Wahclella Falls is charming,…and it is possible for a hiker to have the waterfall all to him or herself" (hikespeak.com/trails/wahclella-falls-Oregon).
So, I began the hike along Tanner Creek to the falls. It was a well-maintained trail, and I was moving at a good pace.
