We didn’t really give Multnomah Falls the respectable time it needed for us to really appreciate the jaw-dropping wonder it so rightfully deserves. We weren’t even on planning to going to Multnomah Falls but decided to make a quick stop on our way back from a trip on the Mt. Hood Railroad.
Thankfully, with it just being a short 30 minute drive from Portland along the I-84, we can come back later and hike up their trails. But here is our first encounter with the breathtaking Multnomah Falls. I apologize ahead of time for the following out of focus picture of us, but it’s the only one we were able to take…and at least the fall is in focus!
With a little reading, I discovered the Multnomah Falls legend: Native Americans folklore tells the story that the falls was created to win over the heart of a young princess who wanted a secret hideaway for bathing. I can only imagine how beautiful this princess had to be…and I love the falls even more just knowing it inspired a love story.
But it’s only obvious how this majestic places opens up the imagination and hearts of everyone who visits.
I absolutely loved walking up to the falls. The cool misty air and lush greenery took you to a very refreshing place.
Unfortunately for us, and many other visitors, we weren’t able to walk up the trail around Multnomah Falls. A few months ago a giant bolder hit Benson Bridge that leads you right in front of and around Multnomah Falls. Fortunately for us, repair is getting underway and we can’t wait to see what’s on the other side of the falls.Still, I can say that Mutlnomah falls is absolutely breathtaking and a beauty that everyone who can should come and see. I may have only seen the falls for a few short minutes, but I fell in love with her just the same.Goodbye for now Multnomah Falls. We promise to return to see you in your full glory!
