Oregon Waterfalls Road Trip

Today’s post is one that I love. Travel posts just make me happy because I know that I have made some great memories and new friends as part of the process. It is the first of two posts documenting a road trip that I took with friends to Oregon in December. Part 1 is sharing the Oregon waterfalls that we visited in the Columbia River Gorge. Part 2 will be about our stay along the coast at Pacific City. Thanks for stopping by to see the photos and video…you are going to love it. 

There are so many waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge. We stopped at 4 of them and were able to hike to each of these in one afternoon, making it a great stop on any road trip.  All the hikes to these waterfalls are less than half an hour and the trails are good for all abilities.  We visited Latourell, Ponytail, Wahclella and Multnomah Falls. They are all spectacular!

A special shout-out to Braedin Toth for the amazing photos and video. Thanks for sharing your talents and taking me along on your adventures.  ?
