Eagle Creek and Tunnel Falls
Lens: SMC-F 28mm f2.8 Camera: Kx Photo Location: Eagle Creek, OR 
Posted By: sgtkashim, 04-10-2011, 10:11 PM

Dragged the camera on a backpacking trip. Only splattered with mud once, but the lens kept fogging up... Made it 10 miles in, but then we hit snow and had to hike back to 8 miles to find a camp site. If you're in Oregon, there's really no excuse not to do this hike. Barely 40 minutes out of Portland, and some of the most beautiful scenery you'll ever see. Start early, and the trails are nearly empty...

These are basically just WB'd and sharpened, but there's a few I plan to go back and spend more time on, as well as a few unprocessed panoramas.

Nice shooting, and looks like a fun place to hike. It did hurt my old bones thinking about the hiking part though......
Best Regards!

Punchbowl falls is only 2 miles in...
And in the summers, you can swim at the bottom!

I kinda forgot to stretch before starting, so right about now I'm sympathizing with the generation ahead of me... >.>;

Most of the rocks were pointy enough that they grabbed your boot, but I did take one nasty slip at a creek crossing. Really really really wouldn't want to fall, though.
