Multnomah green

The base of the upper Multnomah Fall, in Oregon's Columbia River Gorge, where I grew up. I've been getting homesick lately, with everyone beginning to post photos from their summer trips up that way. For me, there is no green anywhere quite like that which you find in the Gorge, particularly in the mist-swept and often cloud-shrouded areas around the waterfalls along the north-facing slopes and cliffs on the Oregon side of the river.

 

"Multnomah Falls is a waterfall on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge, located east of Troutdale, between Corbett and Dodson, along the Historic Columbia River Highway. The falls drops in two major steps, split into an upper falls of 542 feet (165 m) and a lower falls of 69 feet (21 m), with a gradual 9 foot (3 m) drop in elevation between the two, so the total height of the waterfall is conventionally given as 620 feet (189 m). Multnomah Falls is the tallest waterfall in the State of Oregon." (Wikipedia)

 

Taken several years back with a surprisingly decent pocket point-and-shoot. Did what I could with what I had on me.
