    Another Wednesday another round of waterfalls.

    This is an image that won't be possible to duplicate within my lifetime - Elowah Falls as seen from behind the trees along the trail. A couple of weeks ago when I was coming down the Gorge on I-84 I made a point of being ready to glance up the McCord Creek drainage right as I went by. What I could see confirmed what I have read so far about that side canyon - it's bare rocks and soil pretty much all the way down to the freeway. This drainage and nearby Oneonta Creek suffered the worst damage in the whole Gorge.

    Pile on your own shots :)

    Thanks again Alan for starting this. It's a shame about the fire and it's great that you have such a lovely image before the damage.

    Here is one of mine taken above the Provo River falls.

    A sad way to have shots that won’t be duplicated. You didn’t snap any photos of the damage as you drove by? :)

    A nice shot here.

    Well, I am on a day trip up to Pismo Beach today so I threw a waterfall shot on my phone before I left so I could contribute still.

    One of Yosemite Falls.

    Again a number of very nice images. Always look forward to this thread on Wednesdays. My contribution this week is from a fall in Vermont - Moss Glen Falls.

    Again, a really wonderful series. Each with it's own grace -- every single image -- well, excuse the phrase: rocks.

    Clever phone shot Jim, innovative -- couldn't you manage a selfie reflection as well?

    Great job to all.

    Bart

    Exactly the right formula - water, rocks, and gravity. A winning combination in my books :D
