Warm Creek Falls is one of the best waterfalls on Mt. Baker. It occurs where the two branches of Warm Creek horsetail side-by-side down a massive cliff face for about 500' before combining at the bottom. I visited the falls one time on a foggy, rainy October day. I took the picture you see to the right from about 1/2 a mile away . . . and then my camera pooped out from being wet. The falls can also be seen from high above on Grouse Ridge. I would love to make the long, difficult trek back to the base of the falls sometime so I can get better pictures and an accurate measurement. It might happen. Sha, and monkeys might fly out of my butt.
