The Waterfalls of Portland

OK - Actually just outside of Portland there are various waterfalls. Ones you can drive to, ones you can walk to, and well some you just have to hike to. Multnomah Falls is one of the most well known falls around Portland located in the Columbia River Gorge (30-35 minute drive). It's beautiful but can be crowded on the weekends, especially if it’s nice out. Other great options for hiking and waterfall-seeing nearby are Bridal Veil Falls, Wahkeena Falls, Triple Falls, Horsetail Falls, Latourell Falls, Punchbowl Falls, Eagle Crest, and the list goes on and on.

Sue and I decided to a little hiking on Saturday before the Wedding and in the mission to find Multnomah Falls (at least the parking for it) we ended up also seeing Horsetail Falls. Once we parked we snapped a few shots at the base and started trekking up the trail to the top of the falls (it was actually paved all the way up).
