Misty Water Colored Sky

Multnomah Falls is the second-tallest year-round waterfall in the nation. The water of the Falls drops 620 feet from its origin on Larch Mountain.

Multnomah Falls offers one of the best places in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area to study geology exposed by floods. Five flows of Yakima basalt are visible in the fall's cliff face.

Once at the top of the falls, hikers can continue onward for six miles to the top of Larch Mountain or take the six mile Wahkeena Loop trail.
At the base of the falls lays historic Multnomah Falls Lodge. Built in 1925 the lodge provides fine northwest cuisine with a panoramic view.

  2. WOW! I thought the waterfalls in Yosemite and Yellowstone were spectacular but this one is right up there on top as far as beauty and form are concerned. I really enjoyed your photos. I imagine that is quite a hike to take from the bottom of the falls up to the top ..it must be a wonderful challenge.

    I like your blog very much! I became a follower. :-)
    PS: Yes, Green-Wood Cemetery is still active and has many tours. I volunteer with the Historic Fund and I'm involved with many projects there so I am there many weekends. They have a lovely web site and the cemetery historian also has a blog about discoveries made there.
