Punch Bowl Falls Aerial View

I took this picture of Oregon's iconic Punch Bowl Falls 2 days before the devastating 2017 Eagle Creek Fire in the Columbia River Gorge that erupted from that very trail. It was instantly my favorite waterfall out of all the waterfalls I've seen over the years. So it hurt even more when I found out the fire broke out 2 days later, eventually burning almost 50k acres before finally getting 100% contained 3 months later.
