Autumn at lower Lewis falls.

Autumn mossy boulder and Lower Lewis Falls.

Is it still waterfall Wednesday? ;)

I know this is a popular waterfall to photograph, but today I felt, what the hell, might as well join the club. This falls would be even more popular if it weren't pourly marked roads, being out in the boonies between Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams, and you didn't have to drive down a pothole filled gravel road, repel down a slippery rock face with only a flimsy rope, and the fact you are going to fall in the drink while wading out in the icy cold river to get a view similar than this :D

It was all worth getting wet and bruised in the end, for I also came home with 2.6 pounds of Chanterelle mushrooms! That's going to make a great dinner tomorrow night! :)

I got a bunch more comps in the area, but chose my first image to post.

Cheers!
