|Upper North Falls|
I had a nice, long visit with Cody. So long in fact, when I left Mt. Angel, it was late in the afternoon, and I almost headed for home. But with Silver Falls State Park so close, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to check it out, even if I only had a couple of hours.

And I'm so glad I did! The fall colors were in full swing. Bright yellow and orange leaves lit up the forest. I stopped at the first parking area, and took the short path to Upper North Falls.

Upper North Falls is located in a very scenic rocky canyon. This past week's rainfall had it gushing mightily. It's foamy white curtain made a nice compliment to the surrounding forest.

A short path to the falls followed a lovely creek. This waterway was lined with golden yellow foliage. Photographic subjects abounded!

I ended up visiting only Upper North Falls, and spent a couple of happy hours photographing the scenic rushing water and magnificent fall colors. The sun was almost down, with darkness filling the canyon, when I finally arrived back at my car.
But my work here is not done. I'll be back next weekend, rain or shine, to capture more fall colors, and the rest of the waterfalls.
