It is amazing how waterfalls create their own weather. On a recent trip we hiked to Elowah Falls (Oregon) to take photos. The weather was hot and sunny until we got up closer to this waterfall. Near the waterfall it was dark, cold, windy and rainy. It was dark from the shadow the rock formation cast; it was cold because a lot of cold water was coming down cooling down the air around; it was windy because falling water was making the air move; and it was rainy because of all the water mist surrounding the falls.

I could explain all that logically but as I was getting closer it felt like we were traveling into another world. After a while the world outside became less real and I had some surreal feeling returning back to sunny and hot world.
