This is the second time we have been to Oregon in the last 8 months, who’d a thunk? Not us, but circumstances were such that we had to take our big road trip back to Washington state and travel back down through Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada to Arizona. This time though, unlike the torrential rains we had in November, we had plenty of sunshine.
We took this opportunity to do the waterfalls around Hood River, and Klamath Falls. That’s one thing about the Washington / Oregon area… they do have an abundance of waterfalls, something we don’t see too much in AZ, particularly of this size.
Highway 138 between Roseburg and Diamond Lake is actually called the Highway of Waterfalls, with nearly 2 dozen falls along the North Umpqua River in this short stretch of road.
In Oregon, they come in all different shapes, sizes and types. They call them Thundering Waters and class them as Cascade, Segmented, Tiered, Horsetail, Punchbowl, Plunge, Block or Fan.
I’m not sure how many we saw, but we did quite a few, and each cool in its own right.
