In J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium, Aman, also known as the Undying Lands or Blessed Realm, is the home of the Valar, and three kindreds of Elves, this was what I thought to be when I saw this place. The path to the falls is a relatively easy one and the short hike was totally worth it! The falls were named in 1915, by the Mazamas, after a nearby Native American village near Beacon Rock on the Washington side of the Columbia River. It was part of my quest to discover California's and Oregon's waterfall wonders. For a FREE sample of my recent e-book on photographing waterfalls, please visit my website:
