During this time of year we get the chance to view waterfalls that at other times would not exist. With the late winter rain and snow fall waterfalls present themselves for a short period of time, and if you don’t take notice now you won’t get the chance again until next year. Read more about the locations of these seasonal waterfalls below.
The Columbia River Gorge is home to 70 year-round waterfalls, but only 9 of them are visible from the highway, to see the rest of them will take some foot power. This week we were able to add 11 seasonal waterfalls to that total. By the way, some of the seasonal waterfalls are spectacular. On the way home I suggest you stop at Starvation Creek Trailhead and walk the short distance to the foot of Starvation Falls. Every time I do I wonder to myself why this parking lot isn’t as full as the one at Wahkeena Falls. Starvation Falls is one of the best kept secrets in the gorge.
