TitleNo. 32 Ghost Falls, a section of Wah-kee-na Falls. Columbia River Highway, Oregon
DescriptionA black-and-white photograph of a waterfall identified as Ghost Falls, and said to be a section of Wah-kee-na Falls, located off the Columbia River Highway. The water seems to both be running over tiers of rounded rocks, and to have a second level gushing out over them. The view is framed by leafy trees and ferns, and a long branch seems to run from the foreground of the photo into the mist of the waterfall. A mossy tree trunk or rocks seems to be in the foreground of the photo. "Wah-kee-na" is said to be the Yakima word for "most beautiful".
