Photo: Multnomah Falls Near Portland, Oregon
Multnomah Falls, just east of Portland, Oregon, USA is beautiful display of the power of mother nature. The 611 foot tall cascade of frigid water is just a 5 minute walk from the parking lot off of I-84. Legend has it that Multnomah Falls was created to win the love of a young Native American princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe. The day I visited was cold and overcast but is made for some fun photography. There is also a nice restaurant and museum near the base of the falls. Throw in good friends and a warm beverage and Multnomah Falls is a great visit even on an inhospitable day.
