MULTNOMAH FALLS

One of the things about being in a big 18 wheeler, is the lack of access to some really great places to visit while on your travels. One such place is the Multnomah Falls just outside of Portland, OR on Interstate 84. I have tried to capture a bit of the falls as we drive past, but never with any success. Finally, on Sunday, I made it a goal to stop there on my drive into Walla Walla, WA. My only regret was that Craig was not there to see and experience it with me.I don't think I could have picked a better time of year to take in the beauty of the falls. The color of green was every where, you could actually feel the mist from the water falling, and on top of that, with it being Easter Sunday, the normal crowds I see were almost non existent. My best friend Cori and her children kept commenting on how much the location reminded them of the movie Avatar. Not having seen the movie, I can only imagine how magical the scenery must have been after being immersed around the grounds of the Multnomah Falls and Lodge. If you have never been, I would urge you to find a way to stop, and if you're in an 18 wheeler, find a friend or rent a car to get you to this idyllic, magical place.

We used to live in Portland. Multnomah Falls is one of our most favorite nooks in all the world. We've been there many, many times in all kinds of weather. (Mostly rain.) Yes, it's magical.

Thanks for the beautiful photos and memories.
