Check out the before and after shots of South Falls when the tree originally fell in December. Can you see the near side tree getting a “hair cut” by its creek side neighbor?!
The Statesman Journal also captured some shots of the action: South Falls Tree Removal
…and the trail below South Falls is now open!
