Photography Notes:

Washington Cascades are comprised of several cascades and falls. A bit of scrambling may be required to reach some of the drops, but for the most part, this waterfall doesn't hide from view. Have a good look around and see what you can see. You'll want a tripod, polarizer, and warming filter. While early mornings and late afternoons will yield decent light, overcast days are ideal. I've seen photos that indicate to me that early summer will be a good time as there will be abundant wildflowers to serve as a foreground element. A wide range of focal lengths will prove helpful here, some of the more distant falls can be made available.
