Multnomah Falls

 In the summer when we came to Oregon we weren't able to stop at Multnomah Falls because the parking lot was full. That was disappointing, but probably just as well, because no doubt the observation deck and trail was as crowded as the parking lot.

Yesterday when we stopped we practically had the whole place to ourselves. It was a damp, overcast day, but the autumn foliage is beautiful. I thought I would just snap a few pictures of the falls and then we would be on our way. But no....

"Since you're in shape from walking, you can hike up to the bridge with us, can't you?" Lyle wanted to know.

Last time we stopped there, I waited at the bottom while he and the kids went on up to the bridge. It still looked like quite a climb to me, but I agreed to try it.


I'm glad I did. The trail is beautiful.
The view from the bridge is really neat, too. 
You can see how few people were there.
And then we headed on down the road.
