Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls

The Columbia River Gorge is famous for it's waterfalls. Their magnificence is breathtaking. For the last week we have been experiencing a span of freezing temperatures which have turned these waterfalls into pieces of art. Today I packed up Lily for a quick ride to try and capture this beautiful scene.

About the Falls:
Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the entire nation. The water of the Falls drops 620 feet from its origin on Larch Mountain. Unusually cold weather can turns this plummeting falls into a frozen icesicle, with a few drops falling from the bottom.

Latourell Falls plunges straight down into a small pool. The paved trail allows you close enough to feel the spray from the bottom of the falls. Height - 249 feet :: Width - 20 feet

You can see more of my pictures of these and the other waterfalls along the Scenic Columbia River Highway here
