Oregon - Metlako Falls
This was one of the oddest locations on this trip. You had to know where to get off the main trail to see it; it was somewhat hidden. Also there were campers right off the trail and some on the trail. When we arrived at the lookout point a tent had been pitched right on the trail. We had to carefully pick our way around it. From inside the tent, loud music was playing and a scent of some kind of smoke hung in the air. The tent was about 10 feet from the edge of a cliff where this shot was taken. So this was the background to the 5 of us taking turns capturing the falls. It was kind of awkward when the tent occupants finally emerged and were surrounded by a group of photographers. I guess each person has their own way of enjoying being out in nature.
