Waterfall Lover's Guide
Where to Find Hundreds of Spectacular Waterfalls
in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho
4th Edition, by Gregory A. Plumb
An abundance of both mountains and water makes the Pacific Northwest home
to more waterfalls than any other three-state region in the country.
Nothing is more awe-inspiring than the sight of a column of water plummeting
hundreds of feet over a cliff- or more relaxing than the companionable
purl of a creek tumbling over fern and stone on the trailside. This
handy, detail-stuffed guide leads day-hikers, Sunday drivers, vacationers,
waterfall enthusiasts and general outdoor-users straight to some of Mother
Nature's most extravagantly beautiful places.
The text gives clear directions on how to reach
each of the falls and whether accessibility is by car, boat, or foot.
There are plenty of opportunities for exploring, by everyone from rugged
backpackers to young families to car travelers. Is guide is a must
for every "waterfall collector". Author Greg Plumb has spent
over twenty years map reading, driving, and trekking many spray-soaked
miles to find, record, and present this outstanding collection of waterfalls.
Here are some of the features of the 352-page book:
