The Umpqua River begins in the Cascades north of Crater Lake. There are 6 waterfalls within its upper drainage basin. Yesterday I got to two of them.
Whitehorse Falls is set in a glen in the woods with a tent camping area and picnic area alongside. It is wheelchair - accessible and is a cute little waterfall.
Further down the drainage basin is Toketee Falls. This is a 0.4 mile hike on a path with a lot of steps. The falls themselves are in two drops. Most people seemed to focus on the main or lower, larger drop.
While I thought that was really nice, I was much more captivated by the upper drop, tucked back in a hollow in shadows and almost hidden from sight.
On the way back to the campground, there was a great view of Mt. Thielson. Described as "the lightning rod of the Cascades, this basaltic remnant of a volcanic core is marked with streaks and trails from lightning strikes (or so the sign and photos at another viewpoint said).
