Engulfed in Mist
One of the better reasons to be in the great northwest during the summer season is the endless amounts of trails, mountain passes, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, beaches and night skies to explore. We are going on our sixth year in Portland and I still feel we have barely scratched the surface of the intense landscape that lies all around us. One example is ElowahÂ Falls. We have only visited this particular waterfall a few timesÂ , and its only a 40 minute drive from downtown PDX. Consider the fact that the Columbia River Gorge where Wahkeena Falls pounds the rocks below is clustered with 77 or more falls (thats just on the Oregon side). All I can say is pictures don't do justice.
