Ok, who can make it out to the falls and get us some pix of it raging?

I saw a video on the local news last night, it was spectacular, but I don't know if it was this storm or from another year. I'd like to get out there tomorrow, with a camera.

For the glory of NW Hikers and the respect and peerless esteem of your peers. Or something.

Mtn Dog, did you bring your snorkel with you when you took that?  I can't even begin to think how the spray must be like.

This was taken last night around 4:30 PM.  There were a lot of people there!  The mist was very heavy and the rain was also driven by a southerly wind into the lookout area.  I had an umbrella to help keep the camera dry but it was in the way of the fence and railing so I had it down half the time.  The roar was deafening!  eek.gif

Nice capture Mtn Dog.  I was up there this afternoon and it was next to impossible to take a photo from that gazebo viewpoint due to the spray (I got totally drenched - it was like being under a shower) but I was able to get one from the side.

Here's a video I shot.  Kinda cool to compare to the others on YT shot during normal flow.  Alas, no tourist babe narrating mine or footage of the "house" above the falls. clown.gif

Your all lame !
Will somebody please walk down to the bottom platform, and take a picture from there, I have to work, or I would run out there and do it myself. Taking a shot from the top is a cop out, and you cant get the same sense of impending doom that you do from below.
Cmon Tom, you live closer than I do , and Moosefish, you're close.  prod.gif

I've been down there when it's like this and you can't really see much because of the mist. Loud as hell though!

I was up there today also but my pix and movies are almost carbon copies of Toms, even same bushes in the foreground. In those KIRO pix the lower platforms are under water eek.gif

Great pic Tom!  I had fading afternoon light on top of the heavy mist but it was still something to experience.  Looks like the latest photos already show the upper part of the river receding.  I think it crested around noon today at the falls.
