While staying in Troutdale, Oregon, we spent two days experiencing the beauty that is the Columbia River Gorge. Unfortunately, our time to see them coincided with the weekend, which made parking a challenge in most places. It was worth it, though, to view the glorious and varied waterfalls!

Before the falls, we visited a couple of viewpoints--Portland Women’s Forum Chanticleer Point and Vista House Crown Point. Between the two days, we saw the following falls: Latourell, Horse Tail, Multnomah, and Wahkeena, as well as the Oneonta Gorge tunnel. We did not do any hiking into that gorge at all to see other waterfalls, but I imagine it is quite beautiful, too.
