Definitely not in Hawaii.

 

This falls was unmapped until recently and I had the pleasure of joining the "naming expedition."

 

BTW - north is not up.

There's a smaller lake above the falls that is just off of this image whose name (and the name of the associated creek) implies you could go fishing.

 

It's astounding this 125 foot falls was only "discovered" in 2001.

Although there is no trail to this phantom falls at this point - it deserves one.

Gotcha! Once Mount Hood snuck into the frame, it wasn't too hard to zoom in on your mystery falls, which appear to be on Cast Creek. How cool that you got to be part of the naming expedition.

You are hot on the trail Kate - but I am looking for the name of this deceptive falls on Cast Creek.

Weren't you just involved in the naming? Let's see... Hampton Falls.

Ha! I didn't get to pick the name as I was not the first to see it - however I was on the "naming expedition" to the base of the falls with the individual who discovered it.

 

Can anyone use their mad map skills and find the name of the falls?

After searching open street map and GNIS and coming up short, I tried a google search for "new waterfall cast creek, oregon" and came up with Apparition Falls, according to the Northwest Waterfalls Survey. Also apparently called Cast Creek Falls.

Excellent sleuthing!

 

Though you might want to give Kate a hat tip for lead.

 

Here is a link to a write-up about the naming/mapping expedition of this gorgeous falls. It's crazy it had never been on a map!

Absolutely a tip of the hat to Kate, who did the real work in finding Cast Creek. 

 

This is a shot of an urban environment, a historic city.

A little farther zoomed out. Just looking for the name of the city.

Correct... the shape of the peninsula is a give away.

I have to admit it wasn't the shape of the peninsula, although I've been to Charleston. It was more the number of swimming pools, grid street layout, prevalence of red roofs, and location on a wide river that got me there. 

 

The next challenge is to answer why the house in the center of this shot is important:

The Queen Anne style house is on a fairly ordinary-looking street.
