Abiqua Falls is certainly one of the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen. No words can describe such astounding beauty. I finally had a chance to get up to see this waterfall after it had been on my list for many years, and I was overwhelmed. A drop dead gorgeous plummet of 89 feet (measured) off a colorful basalt cliff into a glorious deep, green pool. And the surroundings? Glorious. It is located in a spectacular amphitheater, with magnificent columnar basalt, bright reddish colored lichen on the cliff walls. I have seen well over 600 hundred waterfalls in my long life but Abiqua Falls ranks very near the top of the list of the most beautiful falls I have seen.
