Elowah Falls is a 289 foot waterfall located in the scenic Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. I have been scouting some areas to locate some waterfalls to capture that would not require an extensive hike on days when I’m short on time and Elowah Falls was the perfect fit.
The day of my excursion the weather was unpredictable with moments of pouring rain, hail, and breaks of sunshine. But I wasn’t going to cancel. I needed some fresh air and thermal underwear is your best friend during these times.
The trail leading to the falls is GORGEOUS. It felt like I was in some fairyland forest. Beautiful trees and vegetation surrounded the trails. I was lucky enough to see moments of sunshine breaking through the canopy which added a magical feel to the forest.
