Columbia River Gorge | Oregon

Early spring greens surround the beautiful Elowah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge of Oregon. At 213 feet, Elowah Falls is the 9th tallest waterfall in Oregon and the 6th tallest on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. This location was significantly affected by the Eagle Creek Fire in 2017. Most of the vegetation in McCord Creek canyon burned and with no roots or plants to hold the soil together, the steep slopes have become very unstable. I'm encouraged by the regrowth of small plants in the canyon, but it will take many years to fully recover. I was able to create this photo in the early spring of 2021 when the trail was briefly OPEN. Shortly after my visit, another huge landslide covered the trail, which forced Oregon State Parks to close the trail once again. As of winter 2023, the trail remains closed.
