Multnomah Falls is the centerpiece of a beautiful, multi-stop drive along the Historic Columbia River Gorge highway east of Portland. There are several waterfalls and hiking trails, all beautiful and peaceful. Parking is limited, so go early or be patient.

In the Carolinas, we do not have waterfalls the height of Multnomah Falls. Everything about this fall was awesome. I love the surrounding scenery, the gift shop, the smell of fresh water, the sound of the water falling. I was excited to be there.
