Sahalie Falls, is the first and tallest of three waterfalls on the roaring McKenzie River.
‘The falls plunge a sheer 73 feet over an overhanging exposure of basalt into a huge basin which captures the mist ejected from the falls and turns it into a hurricane directed straight at the viewpoints for the falls just downstream’. Sahalie is a Chinook jargon word meaning “high”.
Our Chasing Waterfalls and Oregon Waterfall Wednesdays series continues. According to Northwest Waterfall Survey there are well over 1000 waterfalls in Oregon! We’ve set out to witness the beauty of as many as we can. We’ll share our finds with you, our guests, so you too can set out to Chase Waterfalls.
You can Chase Oregon Waterfalls with us by following our Pinterest and Facebook pages.
In the Willamette Valley you can spend your entire day doing nothing. Relax on a comfortable front porch at one of 14 bed and breakfasts or in their gardens. Or head out on a day trip to explore the lush McKenzie River, located among old growth forest, waterfalls, mosses, ferns and brilliant blue pools of water.
