Multnomah Falls and More 1.26.13

Saturday, February 02, 2013

We went to Portland last Friday to visit two of our grandsons and their parents too. The boys loved the gifts we brought and we all enjoyed lunch at McD's.

Since we were so close we headed to Multnomah Falls which has been on my hiking wish list for a very long time. We discovered that there are lots of falls and neat things to stop at around there.

Here's some of the best shots:

Happy Brothers

Wahkeena Falls

Multnomah Falls

Trail that goes to the top of the falls is Not recommended but not closed so we went for it.

We saw a neat looking tunnel and pulled over at Oneonta Gorge. When I saw this staircase I just had to go down it and beyond.

    I love MF. It's just really a nice place to go to and wander, wondering. Thanks for the extra pictures of the tunnel and stairway down to a neat view of a gorge. Was that the "creek" that flows down to the falls, or a different tributary? There are so many creeks and rivers in that area. Truly a system like veins. I love the place. Miss the beauty.

Since my nephew is graduating from U-CONN this May, we probably will not make it back to the PNW this year, after all. However, we might make it later in the year.

Have a great one and thanks for the pictures! emoticon emoticon

    Fun road trip. I think really muddy was a SERIOUS understatement, but what fun!
