Multnomah Falls is a gorgeous sight located about 45 minutes by car outside of Portland, Oregon, on the Columbia River Gorge. Several hikes of differing degrees of difficulty offer vantage points to view the falls. The sound of the rushing water is a soothing composition from Mother Nature.

Sixty Stories Tall, Cascading
Go for a quick drive east of Portland, Oregon. Enter the Columbia River Gorge, winding above the southern bank of the river...and you'll be able to walk a short trail to Multnomah Falls—the height of a 60-story building, one of the tallest waterfalls in the U.S.

In 2006, my wife and I traveled to the West Coast, and I took her to Multnomah Falls. I forgot how beautiful they are next to the majestic Columbia River. If you are ever in the Portland area, it is a must-see.
