I loved Peter Jackson's visual representation of The Lord of the Rings and I sometimes wonder where they got their inspiration. Then I visit Silver Falls and see a scene that took computer animation to make in real life. It is a place of stunning beauty and when I went the mist caused by the rain and the falls only served to magnify the magical feeling.
