Oneonta Gorge is one of the many wonders of the National Scenic Area. It is not accessible by trail. Rather you must walk up the creek bed, over a large and perhaps unstable log jam, through the gorge, and up to your waist in water until you finally see falls. Lower Oneonta Falls probably dropped just under 100ft in a backdrop surrounded by steep vertical-walled cliffs and fronted by clear pools. The water was so clear that I even noticed fish swimming amidst the submerged rocks.

This multi-tiered, cascading waterfall is hidden in the dense Williamette National Forest along the McKenzie Pass Scenic Byway. It is one of the most frequently photographed waterfalls in Oregon. Lower Proxy Falls was created 6,000 years ago when a giant glacier carved a deep trough through the area, leaving steep canyon walls after the ice receded. The waterfall is a 100′ drop over stairsteps of broken columnar basalt giving the delicate misty look of the falls.

All 363 miles of the Oregon Coast are free and open to all of us. Which means how you choose to explore it is entirely up to you. The Oregon coast covers basalt rock cliffs, long sandy beaches and awesome tide pools, whales spouting off and breaching in the distance and beautiful sunsets. This photo was taken between Newport and Lincoln city along the Hwy 101.
