Day 5: Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area

Northwestern America and New York



After 5 weeks of extensive traveling on the other side of the big pool, I'm (finally) back to Switzerland. An exciting journey and a large photo tour ended. My wife and I visited several national parks within the USA and Canada. We started in New York and travelled from Portland to Salt Lake City along the Rocky Mountains, spending 2 weeks in Canada in between.


I captured 72GB of photos. Showing all of this would be impossible. I will start with an overview over the journey by presenting one picture a day. I will choose the most significant picture of every day of the journey. I will also add a description of the place so you're able to find those beautiful places if you'd like to.


And for all those who are expecting typical David-Kaplan-style pictures, here a note: During vacation I don't have so much time for planning my photo trips and waiting for the best light. Many of the following pictures may be kind of a snapshot. Please be aware of that when writing constructive critique. But I'm always interested in some feedback because I like to learn.


Day 4: Flight from New York to Portland



Three exhausting days in New York - that's it. On the fourth day, we flew to Porland, OR where our journey actually just begun. Sorry - I have no pictures from this day.


Day 5: Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area



On the following we get our rented RV in Portland and did a short trip to the Columbia River Gorge where several large Waterfalls fall into the Columbia river. We visited Multnomah Falls, a huge two-step waterfall. The one on the picture is the Lower Multnomah Falls with a height of about 70ft.

After that we drove up to the north into the Sequest State Park where we stayed over night.
