Wy'east Falls facts for kids
|Location||Hood River County, Oregon, United States|
|Total height||140 feet|
|Number of drops||1|
The waterfall is formed by Wy'East Creek, a spring-fed stream that plunges 140 feet (43 m) over the Eagle Creek basalt formation. The creek cuts through a narrow and steep ravine and spills off a basalt ledge, plunging in a thin sheet about 10 feet (3.0 m) wide, into a shallow, gravelly pool. The creek then flows for about 300 feet (91 m) before emptying into Eagle Creek shortly downstream of Tunnel Falls.
The waterfall was named Wy'east after the nearby campsite, which in turn takes its name from the local indigenous name for the nearby volcano Mount Hood.
