Multnomah Falls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge is the second highest continuous flowing waterfall in the USA. The combined height of the upper and lower falls is about 620 ft. The upper falls is 542 ft and the lower falls is 69 ft. During the coldest parts of winter, the spray from both falls coats the canyon wall with ice.

Here are two shots, one showing the upper falls and the bridge across the pool and brink of the lower falls, and the second showing the lower falls.

In the first shot, there is ice evidence of a second smaller falls that has stopped flowing.

Scanned 35mm negatives.

Cal, Beautiful pictures of a beautiful place. I love to stop at the falls every time I visit my mom in Beaverton.

After scrolling up and down for about 5 minutes, I've decided...I can't pick one as my favorite. Great shots, Cal. Eachemphasizes a different set of details. Awesome job!

Thanks, everyone. Multnomah Falls is truly the spot to see when traveling though the Columbia River Gorge. It is right next to the I-84 freeway and has a beautiful lodge and gift shop in front of it. There are many other waterfalls nearby. Some are very close to the road and others require a bit of hiking. One can spend an entire day seeing all of these falls. They are all within a mile of each other.
