A lovely fall day at Tumwater Falls Park

This jewel of a park was worth the short drive down to Tumwater. It is a perfect park, especial if you just have an hour or so. There is a quick loop that shows off the waterfalls and the accompanying Deschutes River. And there are also several well placed signs that share the history of the area including the now closed Olympia Brewing Company. I love the idea of going back in the winter when the falls partially freeze! I guess I also need to go back in the spring to see the salmon run. And I bet it’s pretty nice in the summer, so it’s an all season park! The park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.



Good to see you here!
