Wahkeena Falls and the gorge
Just east of Portland, Oregon is the Columbia River gorge. The gorge is surrounded on both sides by lush green forests and steep cliffs. There are a number of waterfalls pouring over these cliffs and they provide a spectacular view of the awesome wonder of our natural world. Wahkeena Falls is one of these falls and it doesn't disappoint in its beauty. Climb the quarter mile winding path for the best view of the falls. If you look the other way from this viewing point you can catch a glimpse of the Columbia River. Very refreshing. The hike and the view.
