The Columbia Gorge, bordering Oregon and Washington States, is home to more than 77 waterfalls, mostly on the Oregon side. Some are more isolated than others, but many are accessible after a moderate hike. The Latourell Falls hike is considered ‘moderate’ with an elevation gain of 635 feet to the upper falls.
Near the trail head, Mr. N and I stopped for a ‘photo op’ with the lower falls in the background. Passersby commented on how well behaved we are. I guess they don’t know Mr. N and I have a secret about that–we work for treats!!Mom was careful going up the trail with it’s many tree roots and rocks. There were places where there were steep drop-offs, but she held my leash tightly. The trail wound around the top of the waterfall and meandered on up through the forest.
Logs were down in many places, often over the stream. You see I’m still not wet–what’s up with that??We finally made it to the upper fallsAnd I was finally able to get my furs wet!
