15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Panther Creek Falls

A little off the beaten path compared to numerous waterfalls that line the Columbia River Gorge. An unmarked path along an endless forestry service road takes you on a treacherous descent down to the base of the falls. The reward of this effort is that you are nearly guaranteed to have it all to yourself.
