Multnomah Falls

Oregon may or may not be my vision of heaven. It's breathtakingly beautiful. Green, lush, mountains, rivers, waterfalls, forest, ocean... It doesn't get much better than this.

Wikipedia: Multnomah Falls is a waterfall on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge along the Historic Columbia River Highway. The falls drops in two major steps, split into an upper falls of 542 feet and a lower falls of 69 feet, with a gradual 9 foot drop in elevation between the two, so the total height of the waterfall is conventionally given as 620 feet. Multnomah Falls is the tallest waterfall in the State of Oregon. It is credited by a sign at the site of the falls as the second tallest year-round waterfall in the United States.

While there is a a moderate, 2.2-mile hike with 700 feet of elevation gain, we took a more difficult 5.4-mile loop to Wahkeena Falls with 1,600 feet of elevation gain.

Note Sarah's shoes. She ended up not going the full distance because her shoes split in half.

My favorite photo from this hike.

I decided to climb this high tree over a rushing waterfall.

I have bruises to prove I did it.
