Roadtrip to Pacific Northwest: Multnomah Falls

Day 4

Day 4 of the road trip saw us making a turn around and ready to head back to California. Today we left Seattle after breakfast and took the long drive to Eugene, Oregon - our home for the night. By lunch time, we were picnicking by Multnomah Falls.

We visited Multnomah Falls a decade ago. We have been meaning to revisit for years, but not until last summer did the opportunity presented itself. The place changed a bit from the last time. It was so much more crowded now and because of the crowd, I did not enjoy the visit this time as much as I had the first time.

The falls itself, however, was as beautiful as I imagined it. The magic of the place is still there. I hope to visit again, in the off season, and hopefully get to hike up there like we've been hoping we would.

In the mean time, we took as many photos as we could.

We did pretty well avoiding arms and heads of people in our photos, didn't we?



  1. They look huge! quite a sight

  2. Hello, this was one of my favorite waterfalls along the Columbia Gorge. Your photos are beautiful.
    Thanks for the memories. Enjoy your day and new week ahead!

  3. Amazing waterfalls and you captured them so well ~

    Happy Day to you,
    C & Z

  4. What a beautiful place. I love mountains and waterfalls. These are spectacular.

  5. They are so tall and huge! Where are you when you shoot the bridge with the falls? Are there 2 bridges and did you also go there to the bridge. I might not be able to do that, my height and depth problems might kill me! I am so envious of your travels again.

  6. Fabulous shots of the falls.

  7. I do love beautiful waterfalls and this one is gorgeous. Thanks for the many great photos.

  8. The waterfalls are truly majestic!

  9. This makes me smile....I live only 10 minutes from these gorgeous falls. I, too, despair at the crowds. Currently you can't go up to the bridge - much of this area is closed due to last fall's forest fire.

  10. What a beautiful area - I love the Pacific Northwest. Lovely shots!

  11. wow amazing pics. Awesome waterfalls.

  12. gorgeous falls, a spectacular site to see

  13. We visited here with the kids many years ago, and it is a very special place indeed. Yes, there is an art to photography at sites that are popular, and you did well!

  14. Multnomah Falls is such a beauty. We visited in November a few years ago and it wasn't too crowded, I guess because of the weather. It was pretty cold and the famous rainy season of the Pacific Northwest was already 'ON.'
    We'd like to do that drive by the Columbia River one more time, and go further east next time.

    Beautiful pictures. I so enjoyed them. Thank you so much. :)

  15. Any time I've travelled through Washington State and Oregon, I've been with someone determined to get to California in record time. Your photos have taken me through unfamiliar places with familiar names and much beauty! Thank you.
