The South Falls at Silver Falls State Park has a vertical drop of 177 feet. It drops off a basalt cliff with an impressive volume of water. The sound that is concentrated by the bowl cliffs makes quit the impression. It was pouring down rain the day I arrived. I was able to shoot during a short reprieve as the clouds blew through at around 30 miles per hour. To get a sense of distance. Notice the trail in the foreground which loops down the valley and across the middle of the cliff just behind the falls. If you look closely, you will see the fence at the middle point behind the waterfall. You can walk behind the falls.
