Last week the weather broke and left a couple days of some great sunshine. I had a last minute cancellation of a photoshoot since all my gear was already packed up I wanted to get out and do some shooting so I contacted my friend and we had decided on a place to hike to. We choose Henline falls in the Opal Creek forest outside of Salem, Oregon.
We had typed in destination into google maps and headed out. Once somewhere off some highway outside of Salem we stopped for some great jerky at this little butcher shop and kept traveling. After a while we ran outside of cell service still following what google maps said to go we kept driving. We had reached the spot where google maps said the trailhead was and we right in the middle of no where (sometimes its a good place to be). We decided to keep driving and kept creeping up this rough road with some of the biggest pot holes out there. My chevy was holding up like a champ and i was having fun navigating the ditches and huge holes. We finally noticed a sign and about half mile past that was the trailhead.
The hike in was nice about a mile in before the falls. When we arrived at the falls there was an old concrete block there and I tied up my assistant to it and started setting up my stuff for some waterfalls shots.
Nanook always loved being out in the woods and kept a smile on his face the whole time we were shooting.
