Multnomah Falls, Oregon: The Ultimate Sightseeing
Due to my work, I am a frequent traveler and quite opportune to visit some of the world’s tourist destinations. Some of you may not get free time to explore due to job and family commitments, but remember life is an opening and a chance that we should use and have pleasurable and adventurous times. Having toured various places, I can dedicate to you Multnomah Falls in Oregon as one of the best areas for a vacation.
Why Visit Multnomah Falls?
My plans for last summer included visiting Multnomah Falls, found on the Oregon side of Columbia River Gorge, to the East of Troutdale. It is located between Corbett and Dodson, beside the Columbia River Highway. My home place is situated east of Troutdale, 15 minutes drive off Interstate Highway towards the waterfall. I had just completed a project on a sub-contract with one of the local engineering companies, and my vacation was to start at that fascinating waterfall.
I made the essential preparations, and left for my retreat. I left my van in the Multnomah Parking site, and trailed to the view point where icy water offers a real natural experience. The place is so attractive and pleasant, while walking several feet up the Benson Bridge to have a closer view of the top. According to my tour guide, the wonderful structure is 611 foot-height and it’s a notable structure made up of all types of rocks found in Gorge.
Then I went down to the Multnomah Falls Lodge, a nice place to relax and stretch legs after trailing and hiking around the waterfall. As I enjoy the magnificent view of the waterfall, I was served with refreshments together with quick snacks, and later some fine dishes from booths found in front of the lodge. This is where several visitors take a breath and stretch their legs after miles of driving. I had a great opportunity to interact with a few of the visitors from different parts of the world.
I propose Multnomah Falls to anyone out there, especially during summer seasons. You may also inquire more about the waterfall from US Forest Service Information Center situated near the tour site.
