My favorite part of driving through the Columbia River Gorge is Mt. Hood suddenly appearing in the pass and Multnomah Falls. It was so crowded at Multnomah Falls for the holiday weekend we couldn't park to take close-up pictures, but captured a couple from the highway. Next week I will be taking the grandkids to the falls and will get a better picture for all of us.
