Latourell Falls - Columbia Gorge, Oregon

Columbia Gorge, Oregon

Along the Columbia River that separates the states of Oregon and Washington, there are some of the most beautiful waterfalls that you will see anywhere. Many of these waterfalls can be found on the scenic Historic Columbia River Highway. The highway runs for 75 miles and starts just east of Portland. This waterfall, Latourell Falls, is the first waterfall along the road and is probably my favorite one along the route. There is a path that will take you to the bottom of the falls, where you can shoot the falls from below (see this post). To get a better view of the falls and to really capture the way that it drops straight down from the overhanging cliff, I took this photo from the beginning of the path.
