Getting to this spot was not easy. After checking out the new, completely unphotogenic log that had jammed itself in front of Punchbowl falls, Jeff and I bushwacked following a faint bootbath off the main Eagle Creek trail down to the creek. After that, it was a matter of making our way upstream, fording it several times until we found the scene we were looking for. This has become a popular spot for photographers, and it’s easy to see why. Conditions have to be just right, of course. The seasonal falls pouring off the cliffs only run certain times of the year. I am glad I took many opportunities to shoot Punchbowl falls before winter brought that new log present for photographers. It is another constant reminder that wilderness scenes change so frequently. I used to be nieve of this, thinking these places will always be the same. Now I make an effort to get out there and see/photograph all I can until mother nature decides it needs to change again.
