Multnomah Falls

I feel very fortunate to have been born on the Oregon coast, and to make my home in the Pacific Northwest where I am surrounded by beauty everywhere I look.Less than an hour's drive from my front door is Multnomah Falls, located in the Columbia Gorge. I first visited this waterfall when I was a child. It never fails to take my breath away every time I see it.It's a mile hike to get to the top of the waterfall. We didn't get to do it on this day. But we will be back in September to take the walk with our children, which I hope will be their first of many. We walked as far as the bridge with Grandma:The view from the bridge looking toward the Columbia River:
The bottom of the upper falls:
Looking down at the lower falls from the bridge. Girlie said this pool was looked like it was shaped like a heart:
My babies on the trail:
I can't wait to come back in September. That's when the salmon will be jumping at the fish hatchery and we'll make our trek to the top of the falls. I'll be sure to take pictures.
I have been knitting a lot and I do have a finished project to share with you, but that will have to wait for another day.

Welcome back, team leader!! I've enjoyed catching up on your summer vacation. (And I haven't knit a dishcloth since that first round of dishrag tag.)
