Mt. Hood Close-Up and Multnomah Falls

I was astonished to come face-to-face with the peak of Mt. Hood just before landing in Portland, Oregon! I'm on vacation this week with my husband Jason and our two sons, Brian (25) and David (22). This is one of our old favorite places to visit. We like Portland, the Columbia River Gorge, and the coastal area of Cannon Beach, Oswalt West SP, Fort Stevens etc. My favorite part is that the four of us are together. At 22 and 25, we rarely spend this much time together.

We visited Multnomah Falls which is along the Colombia River (which seperates Oregon and Washington). There is a charming old restaurant at the base of the falls where he had dinner outside. The upper part falls about 250 feet, and the lower part falls 69 feet. It is just beautiful!

My brother lives out in Hood River, OR, and I think it's quite one of the most gorgeous areas in the US.
