White River Falls is a fairly powerful waterfall in Central Oregon. It’s in the Tygh Valley roughly 30 miles south of The Dalles. In the past there was a hydroelectric dam below the falls ( structure still remaining) and many people would kayak down the lower tier of the falls.

My wife and I decided to drive that way for the day a couple of months ago. I took photos of the falls between bright sun breaks. In the parking area above us a vintage car club was passing through and showing off their toys. On the way home we drove through a rain storm that yielded to a hail storm so strong we were concerned if I drove anywhere near the speed limit my windshield would break.

The last two photos of the falls were shot on film.
