Our day was short so we could houseclean and wrap up loose ends. We rested our weary bones. We did visit 4 beautiful waterfalls that form as the Umpqua River flows through the area on its way to the Pacific. The river plunges sharply through the stony canyons of the Cascades. We drove about 25 miles south on Rt. 138 towards Medford,OR and began with Toketee Falls. Toketee plunges 120 feet in a deep valley populated with towering Douglas Firs-they looked like Sequoias they are so massive.Next was Watson Falls which at 272 feet is the fourth largest in Oregon.Thern on to Whitehorse Falls which is but a 15 foot plunge into a seeming punchbowl. Finally we visited Clearwater Falls which is a broad segmented falls 30 feet in height. All were in such lush and verdant greem valleys.
Enjoy the pictures. We had dinner at Diamond Lake Lodge.
