Picture of the Week: Upper McCord Creek Falls

3 12 2012

More GPS tracking for the “Hiking Waterfalls in Oregon” guidebook led me to Upper McCord Creek Falls this week. This beautiful double-waterfall is just above the massive Elowah Falls. You can learn more about that hike, including directions, here.

Hi Roberta! According to weather stats, we average 165 rainy days a year. Believe it or not, we’re not even in the top 10 of rainiest cities in the U.S. It’s kind of like this – 4 months of the year it’s good and rainy, though our rain tends to be more of a mist or sprinkle than an actual dousing, 4 months of 50/50 rain and sun, and 4 months of dry. It’s a good mix to my liking. It certainly keeps things lush and beautiful!
