The Oregon Trail

This year, we celebrated the 4th of July up in the Northwest, and our Sunday Bucket came along with us! Well, truth be told, we picked an extra slip before we left home. This week’s pick: visit a waterfall.

When we threw this slip in our bucket, we were pretty sure we’d be visiting the Havasupai Waterfalls in Arizona. So, we knew we’d have to do a little research when we got up to Oregon. It turns out, Oregon is home to the second largest year-round waterfall in the US, Multnomah Falls, which is about 35 minutes outside of Portland.

The waterfall was right off of Highway 84. We expected a bit of a hike, but with over two million annual visitors, the park had everything except an escalator to the top. So, with time to spare, we spent the afternoon exploring the Columbia River Valley. We found other waterfalls along Historic Highway 30, saw beautiful vineyards, and found some amazing views of the gorgeous gorge (hah).

 

It’s been a nice escape from the Arizona heat! Heading back this weekend, to another Sunday pick.
