As you continue north, Dorothy Creek flows out of mountains to the left past the red cabin on the far bank of the Nome River. About one mile up the creek is a scenic waterfall. While there is no trail, some people visit the waterfall by crossing the open tundra on the south side of Dorothy Creek and clambering down the steep incline either just above or below the waterfall. American dipper may be seen flying through the waterfall to a dome- shaped nest made of moss on the rock face beyond. On the east side of the road, sockeye salmon use a series of man-made ponds as rearing habitat for juveniles. The pools were constructed during road renovations in 2004. Coho salmon also spawn in the vicinity.
