Salt Creek Falls is the 3rd highest waterfall in Oregon. Salt Creek is a tributary of the Middle Fork Willamette River. Along this creek are some stunning views with cascading waterways, towering trees, and dizzying mountain peaks.
The creek was formed during the last glacial period and has hot springs closer to Eugene. Oregon loves its geothermal activity. Ancient and current volcanoes are the story of the state.
Salt Creek Falls is also one of a handful of nesting sites in Oregon for the Black Swift, a unique and mysterious bird. You can learn more about them HERE.
The best thing about weird and wild Oregon is there is always a photography opportunity.
