The numerous waterfalls of the Cascade Range and foothills are best viewed in early summer as melting snow feeds the streams, and again in autumn as the rains fill the streambeds.

Whether the falls have names or not, they are a refreshing sight to both the eye and spirit. This waterfall was photographed on Camp Robber Creek by the Lake Dorothy Trail in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Washington State, USA.

The Vine Maple (Acer Circinatum) is a deciduous tree that commonly forms the green understory in the mixed conifer forests of the Pacific Northwest. During the spring and summer, the maples use sunlight and chlorophyll to create food necessary for the tree’s growth. In late summer and early fall, the big leaf maple produces seeds which are a source of food for many animals. Later in the fall, as the days get shorter and colder, the naturally green chlorophyll in the leaves breaks down and they stop producing food. Other pigments are now visible, causing the leaves to take on beautiful orange and yellow colors. These colors can vary from year to year depending on weather conditions. For instance, when autumn is warm and rainy, the leaves are less colorful. This colorful vine maple was photographed in Edgewood, Washington State, USA.
