Multnomah Falls is a two-tier 620 foot waterfall located just east of Portland in the Columbia River Gorge. I actually took this photo in near darkness. It was foggy, raining and the sun had set about 30 minutes prior. Luckily my camera did pretty well in the low light and I was able to bring out a beautiful photo from the dark. My wife was right next to me wiping off the spray from my lens as well. Couldn’t have made this shot without her!

I remember visiting this beautiful waterfall when I was about ten years old. My parents and I were driving from Spokane to Cannon Beach, Oregon in our 1978 Commander motor home. We had already seen beautiful mountains, a few other waterfalls and even a moose along the freeway. However none of that could have prepared me for seeing the huge Multnomah Falls high above me.

Since that first visit, I do my best to stop by Multnomah Falls whenever I am driving through the Columbia River Gorge. It’s always busy, sometimes parking is a nightmare. But like many incredible things in life, it’s always worth it.
