Valhalla – Discovering Oregon’s Secret Canyon


Valhalla – Discovering Oregon’s Secret Canyon

It’s difficult to believe in our modern world with so little untouched Earth, that a slot canyon could lie undiscovered a mere 60 miles from Portland, Oregon. Welcome to Valhalla, Oregon’s secret canyon.  In 2010, Mike Malone stumbled upon the canyon and waterfall through an act of serendipity as he led a helicopter crew to fight a wildfire. The fire caused the helicopter to follow a different path than usual and to fly lower than an aircraft would normally be allowed to travel. Four expeditions later, Mike brought his son Sean and a film crew with him to document the journey, finally putting Valhalla on the map.
