Tumalo Falls, Cascade Range, Oregon
(Click image to enlarge)
Tumalo Creek in Oregon's central Cascade Range goes over several waterfalls, but
at 89 feet tall and 25 feet wide Tumalo Falls is the most impressive. The origin
of the name Tumalo is unknown. Because Tumalo Creek is fed by glacial melt
it is thought that the original name may have been Tumallowa, a Klamath Indian
word meaning "icy water".
