Heaven's Gift - Sahalie Falls, H8828
The word Sahalie is a Chinook word meaning “Heaven.”  It is the first of two falls, the second being Koosah or “Sky”, located along the McKenzie River just off Highway 126, a little over 30 miles from Sisters, Oregon.  The two falls are connected by the scenic Waterfalls Loop Trail.<br />
Sahalie Falls is a mass of foaming water that plunges 100’ over a natural lava dam.  <br />
While walking the short distance through the beautiful forest from the parking lot, we were serenaded by the ever-growing sounds from “Heaven”.  The first thing that caught my eye, other than the water, was the lush moss covering the basalt rock, caused by the constant mist.
