Punch Bowl Falls

I took this picture of Oregon's iconic Punch Bowl Falls 2 days before the devastating 2017 Columbia River Gorge fire that erupted from that very trail, stranding many families overnight until they could be rescued. It really hit home that it could have been me stranded, but fortunately I was safe and able to photograph its beauty in its final hours.
