Aug 12, 2012 - Hiking the falls in Columbia Gorge

Aug. 12, 2012, We tried to get an early start to beat the crowds in the gorge, and were moderately successful. Multnomah Falls was the first stop. There were still plenty of people there but more were coming. We hiked a mile and a half to the top of the falls, at 620 feet. Then we hiked to Triple Falls, 1.8 miles one way. It was beautiful and mostly shaded, with very nice weather. There are many falls into the Columbia Gorge and we were very happy to have seen about five of them today. A great picnic topped off the day.

It was raining a bit while we were there which must be a common occurrence. Lots of bright green colours here!

Before we departed on our trip, we had considered visiting this area on our way back from Port Orford. Since we ended up near there anyway, we thought we should check it out. Specifically, there is a little campground in...

Mar 30, 2010 - It was a dark and stormy night . . . .

The weather forecasters nailed this one right on the head. Those sustained 30-40 mph winds and 70-80 mph gusts arrived right on time and they were as fierce as predicted. The sustained winds we were experiencing as we hunkered down in our beds around 10:00 p.m. were tolerable, but once the stronger gusts hit around midnight, we were in for a wild ride. Our campsite was somewhat protected amongst the trees, more than a half mile from the Pacific ocean where the wind was coming from, but those gusts travel inland hard and fast. Far off in the...
