Well my sister and I went for another hike. We chose an "easy" trail that we hadn't been on for a number of years. The elevation climb was more gradual than some of our other recent hikes, but it was a total of about 14 miles so our feet were really hurting for the last 2-3 miles. We were hiking for nearly 8 hours today, but the view of Tunnel Falls was worth the effort.

This sheer 175 foot plunge on the East Fork Eagle Creek is often the destination of choice for hikers along the Eagle Creek Trail. The trail passes behind the falls, through a tunnel blasted out of the solid bedrock wall of the canyon, giving the falls it's name.

Named for the tunnel blasted into the cliff face behind the waterfall, to provide trail access further upstream.

Julie, A nice shot of this waterfall. That is an interesting and diffrent perspective the way you have this frame. Nice color and detail on this waterfall shot.

I think you've captured the grandness of this view all the way down to the bottom, I'm sure glad they've put those cables to hang onto or I'd have never made it around these cliffs! Nice job of stitching the photos together.

Hi Julie, beautiful perspective and good colours: It transmits a depth sensation. Well done!

Hello Julie,
Great capture and framing. There is a internationally recognized photographer, named Horst Hamann, from my hometown. He specializes on vertical photography and has exhibitions of that e.g. at the Modern Art Museum in NYC. Your post would suit him well - I bet. ;-) Thomas
