Fairy Falls, Columbia River Gorge

Exploring the Pacific Northwest

Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing the stunning journey of our good friend and Operativ photographer, Cody York, on his way through the Pacific Northwest. Cody made a name for himself for well over a decade as a photographer in the BMX, skate, action sports industry, being published in all of the big names like ESPN, Ride BMX, DIG, BMX Plus!, Redbull, and documenting hundreds of events like the X Games, DewTour, and so many more. He continued to follow his passions along side his profession as a photographer, branching out into photographing his favorite bands, and outdoor lifestyle and landscape photography to name a few. Keep an eye out here on the Operativ site and Cody’s social media @cyorkphoto to see what he captured in the PNW.

“The first stop on our PNW trip was Fairy Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. This appropriately named waterfall is a short, but steep (600ft), hike along the Wahkeena Trailhead and offers stunning views of the Gorge along the way. It’s a bit of a hike but definitely well worth it!” – Cody York
