Sometimes you just need to unplug. It was beautiful on Saturday, so we went to Multnomah Falls. Us and a bazillion other people! But it was a good time, anyway.
Multnomah Falls is 620 feet high; it’s the second highest year-round waterfall in the US. This is just the upper portion of the upper falls. There’s a paved trail to the top of the falls. The trail gains 600 feet in elevation over 1.2 miles. Don’t think I didn’t notice.
Photo ops make a great excuse to stop for a moment:
Somehow this fern looks like a sock pattern to me.
We eventually made it up to the top, and could look down at where the water falls over the edge of the mountain.
In this photo, you can see Multnomah Falls Lodge and the parking lot in the upper right corner. It’s a long way down.
But this picture is my favorite. It’s a little waterfall just before the big one. You wouldn’t know it’s there unless you went to the top. It looks mysterious and secluded, but it’s right next to the viewing platform at the top of the falls.
