The Sunday Traveler~Multnomah Falls

The Sunday Traveler has seen many a beautiful place along the travel road, but Multnomah Falls is something beyond the pale.

The falls are located in the Columbia River Gorge, in Oregon; part of the Pacific Northwest

That bridge up there was my goal. The height of the falls is 620 feet, so my walk up a paved road/path was upward just short of those 620 feet. I’ll take you along on the path with me and the varying views of the falls as I walked up. The path is at a gradual incline, so not so very difficult if you’re a walker, and that I am, getting to where I want to take photos however I can.

The falls are there in the background, a bit hidden here, but when there, you can sure hear them thundering down.

The path up, with fencing on the right to protect from falling boulders

Looking over the edge on the right of the path. The longest drop from the top is 542 feet.

Two summers ago a fire occurred on the lands in the falls area and the remnants of that can still be seen

The next two photos are burned trunks of trees, the first that appears to be petrified, and felt as smooth as marble

Nature persists and returns.

The Sunday Traveler will have a few more photos of the falls next Sunday to finish off this wonderful day in the PNW.  Until then, travel on.

  2. You’ve captured nature’s majesty, waterfalls. Even as they are visible natural wonders, they seem illusions and magical.

  5. nice photos, Angeline. I had a friend who took a trip thru Oregon every year and took a photo of these falls and bridge. He died a few years ago and these are the first photos that I’ve seen of this place since then. Thanks for sharing your work and bringing back memories of a great friend.

    It looks very green. If you hadn’t mentioned the fire, I wouldn’t have noticed. Beautiful pics.
