Diamond Creek Falls - Diamond Creek harbors a pair of large waterfalls, and fortunately at least one is easily accessed. Here, Diamond Creek runs across a steep cliff where the creek widens to a good 75 feet as it veils 120 feet down jagged, grooved basalt formations. Because of the channeled, roughly domed shape of the falls, foreshortening and perspective perception changes dramatically between the different viewpoints. From the bottom of the falls, the width appears much more significant than the height of the falls, but when viewing the falls from above, the height becomes quite apparent. Most sources cite this waterfall as standing about 90 feet tall, but topographic maps show a well-defined drop of about 120 feet, and I am much more inclined to believe that figure until a definitive number can be reached.
