The Power of Sol Duc Falls
Sol Duc Falls in the Sol Duc Valley are part of the expansive Olympic National Park. The 48 foot drop of the falls is quite impressive and hard to imagine that this river serves as a key highway for coho salmon, running through the valley and ascending to the lakes and headwaters in the surrounding mountains. The beauty of this short trail is awe-inspiring and according to the National Park Service, most of the trees are old growth.
This was taken upstream from the falls and I wanted to capture the power of the water. Most capture the actual drop which is down right impressive but when we were there, the sheer power of the water spray was soaking my lens. So a quick scramble over a log got me upstream where I could capture this.
