Last summer I was slowly ambling along the Columbia River Highway east of Portland Oregon for the first time. I had no idea what to expect, but was amazed and delighted to discover Multnomah Falls right beside the highway! At 620 ft, Multnomah Falls is the second tallest year-round waterfall in the United States after Yosemite Falls. Photos usually contain the entire falls, including a 45 ft long footbridge. I preferred to focus on the lower part of the falls and the pool at the bottom. Small green plants (no botanist here) cling to the steep rock walls. I hope you love my discovery as much as I do.
