More and More Waterfalls


On our next Boring day (oh, I mean day in Boring...) we went back to see all the waterfalls on the Historic Columbia River Highway. Although I guess you should save the best for last, if you do that here, you won't find a parking space. So we started out with gigantic Multnomah Falls.


We walked up to the bridge to get a close-up look at the Upper Falls.


Then moved on to Horsetail Falls, which was right by the road.


I loved the volcanic rock formation behind the falls.


A closeup.


We then moved on to Wahkeena Falls -


And Bridal Veil Falls.


And last, but not least, Latourell Falls.


It drops straight down from an overhanging basalt cliff.


A close-up of the columnar basalt formations.


While at Latourell Falls, a butterfly got very attached to me, and traveled with me quite a ways.


He even got on my hand and rode!


On our way home, we stopped at a lavender farm, just to take some photos.


The smell was amazing, and the bees really loved it.
