Lower Lewis River Falls ,WA ,USA


Address -: Lower Lewis River Falls , Cougar, WA , USA

This beautiful and quite powerful waterfall actually looks better during lower water periods. When the water is high, a solid wall of water crashes into the large pool in spectacular fashion, but during low water periods, the falls look more graceful and calmer. Be careful in this area, the rim of the canyon is abrupt and the river is fed by glaciers on Mt. Adams. The falls have created a nice plunge pool, perfect for swimming in. Be sure to stay away from the falls however. While you will visit the falls once, you may see people are climbing around on the rocks beneath the base of the falls. Not a very smart thing considering this is a glacial river, and one wrong slip could end up sending a person into the powerful undertow beneath the falls, which would almost definitely be fatal.
