McKenzie River Waterfalls

Next week is the Annual Meeting of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild and living in Parkdale, Oregon, we have a couple of ways to get to Salem.  We are choosing the longer route for a couple of reasons: We love to Chase Waterfalls and Geocaches and document them on our Facebook page.  So we’ll head south around Mt Hood then take the McKenzie Pass Scenic Byway, Hwy 126.  These are just a few of the McKenzie River Waterfalls we hope to shoot.  If you know of any others please let me know.  We have most of the afternoon and an extra hour of daylight.

Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls:  Two breathtaking waterfalls with foaming white water cascades in between

There are other waterfalls in the World Famous McKenzie River area and I’m not sure we’ll have time to see them all.  We’d love to hike into Tamolitch Falls (aka Blue Pool) but again, time and weather will be the deciding factor.

We invite you to discover and explore the Scenic McKenzie River area, either on foot, bike or car.  Start your journey at an Oregon Bed and Breakfast member inn on either side of this stunning drive through the Central Oregon Cascades, from Eugene or Sisters.   I hope to get some good shots and share them with you in a future post

The innkeepers of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild are ready to share Oregon, its Culinary Tourism and Geotourism, its environment, culture, and heritage with you.  Get to know our State like a local; stay with one of our nearly 100 hosts in any one of our six regions.  Experience romantic getaways, historic treasures, and tucked away rustic retreats.  Whether your trip is for a quiet escape to a quaint rural or coastal town, taking in Oregon Geotourism, for a World Class City experience, or for a new spin on business travel, you can be assured of combining gracious hospitality with ambiance by staying at an unique inspected and approved Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member Inn.
