The word "Sahalie" is a Chinook word meaning "high". Sahalie Falls is indeed a high, glorious waterfall. The McKenzie River crashes 100+ feet over a lava cliff to form this stunning display. Sahalie Falls (along with Koosah Falls) was formed thousands of years ago when lava flows buried parts of the river.
