We arrived home from Oregon on Monday night, but I have been so busy playing catch up with laundry, cooking, housework, etc. that I have not had time to post or visit other blogs. Anyhow, we had a great time in Oregon, and I enjoyed the intense greeness and fresh feeling of that fine state. When we arrived on Wednesday, our friends took us to visit Multnomah Falls. At 620 feet, this is the second highest year round water fall in the United States. It was very beautiful, and the hike up to the top was supposedly a mile. Alas, it was all uphill, and I was huffin and a puffin and not able to finish the whole hike. Being somewhat of a coat resistant Californian, I did not bring a jacket with me, and it was cold, especially when you were hit by the spray of the waterfall. My husband, kids and our friends’ kids made it all the way to the top and enjoyed a great view. Below are some photos I took with my cell phone. I’ll try to post more in the next few days about other things we enjoyed on our trip.
