Travel Tuesday: A Moment of Zen at McDowell Creek Falls

At a time when a lot of us could probably use a dose of serenity and a deep breath of fresh forest air, we’re lucky that the Pacific Northwest can deliver both in spades. Case in point, Oregon’s utterly enchanting McDowell Creek Falls. Local photographer and @OregonExplored founder Eric Muhr helps us slow down and soak up the details of this soothing place, from an unfurling fern to the peaceful sound of the spot’s namesake falls. Click through the gallery below to take in the beauty of this PNW gem through Eric’s Steller story.
