To celebrate a new year, we decided to take a road trip in the pouring rain and fog up the Columbia River Gorge. We received record breaking levels of snow that has mostly melted and it has been raining all week, so the waterfalls were raging!
Our first stop was Vista House which was closed due to the weather.
Next stop was Latourell Falls
Another raging waterfall along the roadway...just ahead the road was washed out and crews were place tons of rock to stop the flow that was pouring over the roadway.
Our next stop was Wahkeena Falls
Next stop was Multnomah Falls Lodge
Multnomah falls in the upper left and due to record water levels an additional waterfall to the right of Multnomah falls. The lodge is on the lower right!
Our last stop was Horsetail Falls...this one was by far our favorite. The water was raging and you can see the spray coming from impact with the water below!!!
On the way home we stopped and took a photo of Willamette Falls . These falls are 10 miles from our home. The water level is so high now it doesn't even look like a waterfall anymore...more like a large rapid!!!
