Multnomah Falls, Oregon

As we say in Boston, Nomah! This was a great take in. Multnomah Falls is the tallest waterfall in the State of Oregon and a short ride from Portland.

  2. To get here from Portland you take 30 w / 84 w.  We got off at the Bridal Veil Exit, but that was a mistake. It was the Fourth of July and we were stuck behind a parade. After re-routing we got there. 

    The parking lot was jammed, but we found a spot, then did the short hike through the woods to the falls. 

    An alternative would be to get off 30/84 at the Multnomah Falls Rest Area and then follow the patch under the highway to the falls.

  7. Just as you get on the path to the falls, there's a little stream that's fast moving. A good place to try out my Samsung Galaxy Camera waterfall setting. ;-)

  21. "A foot trail leads to Benson Footbridge, a 45-foot (14 m)-long footbridge that allows visitors to cross 105 feet (32 m) above the lower cascade."

  24. I zoomed in on these people and then thought it would be a good idea to send my wife, Carol up there.
