It's not always easy finding the beauty in life. Sometimes we have to search for it instead of waiting for it to find us. Proxy falls is one of the many beautiful waterfalls in Oregon. It sits all by itself in a forest a few hours away from the popular Columbia River Gorge. You can't drive up to the falls and for the best view you have to get off the beaten path. It's covered in shade throughout the day and mostly inaccessible during the winter, but it's the most beautiful waterfall I've found.
