Geo 1095: January 20, Day 750: Looking Back

On this particular trip, we hiked down the gorge from North Falls, and came back up a side spur from the main loop trail (which I'll describe and recommend later) at Winter Falls. In this final shot of North Falls, I'm once again struck by the shear scale of this feature, despite the fact it's nowhere near one of Oregon's tallest waterfalls- that "thin" set of dark beds at the back of the overhang are as tall as a short person. At this scale, the bench directly behind the falls is just barely visible. The contact between the upper metamorphosed sediments and overlying Columbia River Basalt is also clear in this shot.
