Cascade on Spring Creek

Cascade on Spring Creek

This small fall in a series that stretches for miles has a drop of about four feet. The creek is running full now from snow melt on Big Hole Peak, 6 miles upstream and four thousand feet above.

  1. What a beautiful photo. Thank you for including the path it has taken to get there … Very cool. So to speak. :))

    • Thank you Teresa! The stream’s entire length is a pleasant place and Big Hole peak is itself covered with wildflowers in summer.

  2. Lovely, indeed. May I mention that it bears a striking resemblance to Houston freeway overpasses just now? 🙂

    • Now that’s a scary waterfall! I hope you didn’t have any problems with the flooding down there! I’ve been seeing the floods on the news.

    • It still felt cold in that deep canyon, but apparently warm enough to melt the ice.

    • Earlier than most year I would think. A few years ago I hiked to the top and the last two miles on about 4 feet of packed snow.

    • Thanks! It’s kind of tricky there. It’s a deep canyon full of tall cedars deep shade and when the sun does find a place to come through the light is overwhelming. Beautiful and cool though!

    • Shooting in that area is always hard. The shade is so deep there that when a beam of light does come in the contrast is extreme. It’s too easy to over expose the lighted places, especially the water.

  7. It’s quite warm here today (amazing, for us!) so this photo is beautifully cool and refreshing!

    • It is warm here this week too, but in that canyon it was cold! Later in the summer that will be a retreat for that reason.

  8. Waterfalls fascinate me, no matter how big or small. We loved all the waterfalls in Oregon when we lived there – Multnomah Falls being the most spectacular. But I even love seeing the small ones on creeks here in PA. Lovely photo as always, Montucky.

    • All of the small streams that come down from the high areas are full of cascades and a few waterfalls. I love them all and appreciate the life-giving water that they carry to the valleys.

  10. Now that’s something to revel in: falls that stretch for miles. What fun.

    • It’s a favorite place. There’s a trail up through the canyon but you have to work to hike it and that’s good because it keeps out most of the traffic.

    • It is. I haven’t figured out how to capture that yet, but it’s part of the experience.
