There are other falls in the area and we passed them and took some photos before we got to Multnomah Falls. Here are a few photos:
As beautiful and tranquil as this area is, it will forever be known to me as the place where I really, really, really had to go to the bathroom. Thankfully I found a bathroom just down the hill before things got ugly. Anyhoo, beautiful, right?
I loved this tree. My husband sees a face, I just see boobs.
This is the largest snail I've ever seen. I bent under a fence and stretched as far as I could into the restricted area to get my finger in the photo for scale. Wet too. Why are snails always moist?
Multnomah Falls was only in Twilight once. Edward and Bella walk past it on their way to the Baseball Field. There was a scene of them standing on the footbridge in front of it but that scene was cut. It's on the DVD extras though so you can still see them on the bridge.
As we drove in from Wahkenna Falls, which was about 1/2 mile, if even I was blown away when I saw this over the trees as we parked the car and then to walk around the little store and see this beautiful scene in the distance, no wonder they chose to film here!
As if being at the bottom of the falls wasn't cool enough, we decided to walk up to the footbridge. I passed a lot of mossy trees and walk ways on the way up, which I just love! It really was a beautiful walk up under a canopy of some of the greenest trees I've ever seen!
This is my proverbial check out my fillings pose from the footbridge:

This is standing on the footbridge looking out over the water and a train track:

I climbed a little higher than the footbridge without Chris. The fact that he made it up to the bridge with a broken foot is awesome so I wasn't going to ask him to go any further. It was so close to the falls up there that it was getting my camera wet. I had to cover it with my hat and water was all over my face. It's funny because this photo makes it look like nothing but it was very powerful.
Next stop, a bridge. Miles to go before I sleep......
