Way to get creative.  Nice mixture of east and west side of the crest.  I've been to a few of those, but wasn't familiar w/ others.

Have you hit Silver Falls State Park near Salem?  I still haven't been there, it's on my to do list but hasn't happened yet.

Nice.  Gives me more reason to want to visit there.

I grew up in White Salmon, WA and my parents are still there.  I cut my teeth hiking in The Gorge, still love hiking around there.  I noticed some Multnomah Falls and Elowah and/or McCord Creek shots in there w/ Silver Falls.  I was a bit bummed everything on the Oregon side is shut down, so I had to explore on the Washington side around Carson this Thanksgiving.

Gorgeous images, made all the more magical with the intense greens.
Here is a short video of the unique experience of running some of the Gorge trails during  the spring  snowmelt flush. In one case runners even go behind a thundering waterfall...Ponytail Falls! http://projecttalaria.com/2014/08/gorge-waterfalls-50100k-film/
Unfortunately, due to the horrible 2017 Eagle Creek wildfire, most of those trails are closed now and for the foreseeable future.  bawl.gif

Wow! That upper portion of this waterfall is absolutely beautiful. I really like the chocolate milk color and frosty white contrast. The long exposure really makes these contrasting colors standout.

The video is very well done.

Radka, honestly I'm not trying to divert attention from your always-superb photos, but since you liked the video, I've attached another from the same year (2014). It also focuses on the Gorge Waterfalls 50 km race but I believe has better views of the waterfalls and dripping greenery...and a better soundtrack IMO. 🎶
Here's the link:  https://youtu.be/vDQsfYSJsnI ( allow about 10 minutes if you watch in entirety)
