Racehorse Falls and Racehorse Creek empty into the North Fork of the Nooksack River near Welcome Valley and along the side of Slide Mountain. Both are named for the horse-head-shaped depression near the side of the lower falls visible in some of the photos below.
On the date these pictures were taken I was tired of sitting in my office and decided to go and visit several places that were good for photos. At one site I took pictures of old machinery and vehicles before going on to the short hike to Lower Racehorse Falls.
There is an upper falls as well, I recently learned, but I have never visited it. The pictures shown are of the Lower Falls and of the creek below the falls, one of four falls on the creek. The Lower Falls drop a total of forty-eight feet.
