Eagle Creek Trail Upper Cliffs

You will have to squint at this photo a bit to appreciate the content. This is the final cliff along the Eagle Creek Trail, before the route enters deep woods and climbs to Wahtum Lake. Look closely, and you can see a backpacker making his way around the bend, with a drop of nearly 200 feet below. In the shadows is a narrow slot canyon, where the Indian Ridge fork of Eagle Creek catapults down Twister Falls (next page), easily the most vertigo-inducing drop along the trail.
