Myrtle Falls, Mt. Rainier National Park
Photo By Cory J O'Neill

  • Title: Myrtle Falls, Mt. Rainier National Park
  • State/Province/Region: Oregon
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: US 706
  • Nearest Town: Longmire
  • Brief Directions: From the junction of US 7 and US 706, go east on US 706, through the town of Ashford, and through the Nisqually entrance to the park. A beautiful 40 minute drive leads to Paradise, parking, and trail access to the Myrtle Falls viewpoint. Head east one-half mile from the upper parking lot along the Skyline Trail to the falls viewpoint.
  • Notes: Myrtle Falls drops gracefully for over 50 feet, and provides a stunning foreground for viewing Mount Rainier along the Skyline Trail. Located in the heart of Paradise--by far the most visited area of Rainier National Park--the viewpoint is usually crowded, especially on cloudless days. Early mornings and late evenings, however, I have often found myself alone, savoring the lively roar of the falls and the golden light painting Rainier's mighty flanks.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Gear: Tripod, rain gear

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
