I waded into the forests up Steamboat Creek and found a pretty cool waterfall, using lidar both at home and in the field.
I took a trip back to the area around the arch and ended up with a surreal experience that cemented this as one of the more legendary places in my travels.
After taking 4 failed trips to get under the arch and a better picture, I finally got serious. And I finally got success.
Updated Google Earth images gave me an updated impetus to venture back to Huckleberry Creek.
I stumbled across a rocky area on the map and decided to check it out. When I got there, I found much more than I expected.
I finally went to the largest waterfall on the North Umpqua River and it did not disappoint.
It had been many years since I had been up Canton Creek so on a whim, I took a left and headed up, looking for find something interesting.
I went back to the area with the Big Cave in it to see if I could find more caves and interesting spots.
I had heard a whisper of an impressive cave in Southern Oregon. Considering caves are pretty hit-and-miss here, I was interested enough to take a wild shot at finding it.
