Wednesday, July 23, 2008 - ABC Wednesday, A is for Awesome!

Awesome view from the top of Multnomah Falls, courtesy of guest photographer Kailey.

I could never take this photo because I would not be able to convince myself to even try to hike to the top of the 620-foot falls. Here's a crop of the pool at the bottom of the upper falls (on the left of the photo, where the logs are floating) and the viewing deck at the bottom of the lower falls. I've been here but no higher.

You can just see the Benson Bridge, too, if you follow the path from the curved deck up and around to the left. Monday, July 14, Kailey, Leland, Lindsay and Lamont hiked to the top, enjoyed a picnic lunch, and hiked back down. What a great time they had!


In order to get another perspective of this awesome waterfall, here's my photo of Multnomah Falls from the viewing deck.

And here's the pool at the bottom of the falls.

Awesome is right. I feel dizzy and nauseous from looking at the first photo. I didn't realize that I was afraid of heights in a photo. I thought I had to be there.

I'll have to look up info on the falls. I wonder about the geological history of how it got that way.

When you look at the falls from below, you have no idea how high you really are when you look down! Great pictures!
