I had seen a photo on flickr of a place in Southwestern Washington State called Panther Creek Falls. Since I was headed in that general direction I decided to research it and found it was only about 25 miles one way off my planned route, so I took the detour and WOW was it ever worth it. This is the upper falls and in future days I'll post some from the main falls. It may be the greenest lushest place I have been in my entire life. I was awestruck by the beauty. Sadly photos don't do it justice but I'm sure glad I got a few to share.
Yes, this is HDR, but it really looks much like this.
