Waterfalls



There is an extraordinary amount of waterfalls located in the North Cascade Mountains. Even though many are visible to people from the highway, there are still many waterfalls just waiting to be discovered by those who travel in the backcountry.

The Cascade Mountains are in fact, named for the many waterfalls they contain. Well actually for the many cascades they contain. A waterfall is the same thing as a cascade except, usually it is much wider and shorter. Many of the waterfalls are quite spectacular and beautiful.

One of the many waterfalls is the Gorge Creek Falls. Just below Gorge Creek Falls is Gorge Creek. Then Gorge Creek runs into the Skagit River that the goes through the Gorge Dam, the most western dam on the Skagit.
