Sulphide Creek Falls (SulphideFalls081206-03adj.jpg

North Cascades National Park

This waterfall is said to be one of the tallest in North America, dropping approximately
2100 feet from Sulphide lake to the basin below in a virtually continuous series of cascades.
Due to the deep cleft in which it runs, combined with the twisting nature of the crack, the
falls is only partially visible at any particular height. Because of its remote location and the
extremely rugged terrain, Sulphide Creek Falls may be nearly impossible to view while on foot,
except for those with technical climbing experience and a love of severe self-punishment.

This image shows Sulphide Lake and the upper one-third of the falls.

Sincere thanks to filmmaker Chris Dumas of San Francisco, California, for bringing
Sulphide Creek Falls to my attention.
