Lower Lewis Creek Falls

by

The iconinc Lower Lewis Creek waterfall is located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest on NF-90.  There are some amazing photographic opportunities along this stretch of river including the lower falls.  It is photographed often and quick google search will turn up many results.  Depending on the time of year you can capture many unique perspectives of this waterfall.  When the water is lower, you can follow a narrow trail down to the base of the trail.  A quick warning, is that the trail is dangerous and one place you have to drop off about an 8 foot cliff via a rope.

The first photo I took was more straight on to the falls.  You can wade out quite a ways into the water as it is fairly shallow, but I really liked the color of the rock and how it contrasts with the green.

Lower Lewis Creek Falls Second Perspective

Another slightly different composition of the falls.  You can almost see the light rays from the morning sun.  The water is low during this time of year so you can get very close to the falls.

Lower Lewis Creek Falls Third Perspective

I like this particular photo due to the rocks that help create perspective.  This falls is rather large and you get a better sense of it from this perspective, along from the cliff side.
