Wahkeena Falls and Fairy Falls

Wahkeena Falls

Wahkeena ("most beautiful" in the Yakima language) (sometimes spelled Wah-kee-na) tumbles 242 feet in a cascading type of falls with 3 plunging falls.

Wahkeenah Falls from the stone bridge you can barely see in the picture above.

But that's just the part you see here. On up behind this falls is a cascade which flows a long way. . .

. . . and then you come to Fairy Falls.

I enjoyed this trail more than any I have walked so far. It is a bit steep for an old man, but it is wide and smooth with several places to rest.

Lots of wild flowers bloom along the way.

Aruncus sylvester or Goat's Beard

Orange Columbine

Sedum oregonus or Oregon Stonecrop
