The McKenzie River Wild
The McKenzie River is like no other river found in Oregon. Its origin is Great Spring, where years of filtered water quietly emerge and flow into Clear Lake where a sunken forests looms under the surface. From Clear Lake the McKenzie River begins its journey toward the sea. The river's first great natural wonder is Sahalie Falls.
Sahalie Falls cascades 140 feet, (according to the book: Waterfall Lover's Guide - by Gregory A. Plumb), and tumbles over an ancient volcanic lip, crashing into a deep blue pool surrounded by moss covered rocks and trees. The constant drifting spray from the falls douses the surrounding area keeping it very green even in the hotest of summer days.
The gorgeous Koosah Falls thunders over a sharp ancient volcanic escarpment and plunges
80 to 120 feet, (according to the book: Waterfall Lover's Guide - by Gregory A. Plumb), but I want to say the falls drops higher than Sahalie Falls. I think Koosah Falls is more like 120 feet. Again, why with today's technology has it not been determined the actual heights of these two falls, just puzzles me?
