Under Latourelle Falls

The incredible Latourell Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. Of all the waterfalls along the Gorge, this one is perhaps the easiest to access. You can see it from the parking area and its just about a 5 minute walk to get to this spot. But it is an incredible sight to see. Water flows over basalt cliffs and falls 250 feet into a tiny pool at the bottom. If you look close, you can see a person approaching the bottom of the falls. That would be me. I had actually planned to stand on that rock in front of the base of the falls......but its a bit more daunting when you are actually there.....the force of the falling water makes it tough to get close....and you go from zero to soaked in about 8 seconds.....but it is completely amazing just to stand there and watch nature show off.
