Metlako Falls Oregon USA

Metlako Falls is a waterfall on Eagle Creek in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area in Hood River County, Oregon, United States. It is the furthest downstream of the main waterfalls on Eagle Creek. The lovely waterfalls drop out of narrow, calm pool, and thunder into an inspiring gorge. The waterfalls were named in 1915, by a committee of Mazamas, for Metlako, the Indian goddess of Salmon, likely because of the fact that this waterfall marks the upstream limit to fish that spawn in Eagle Creek.
