Oregon’s Cascade Mountains get a lot of precipitation and with that comes a bunch of awesome waterfalls. Salt Creek Falls is one of Oregon‘s most powerful falls; at 286 feet it’s the third highest single drop fall, coming in just behind Watson Falls (293 feet) and Multnomah Falls (620 feet).
The pool at the bottom of the waterfalls is deep, around 66 feet, and that has a lot to do with the sheer volume of water that plummets over these falls every year. Approximately 55,000 gallons per minute flow over the edge and into the pool below. The falls are usually at their fastest and fattest when the mountain snow melts in the late spring and early summer.
