Columbia Gorge Spectacle

Multnomah Falls is 30 miles east of Portland in the Columbia River Gorge.  

Here's the Benson Bridge near the bottom of the falls. Both images were taken on Tuesday.  Click on the link for other Monochrome Weekend submissions.

  2. Wonderful falls. I love the detail in the second photo - and the fact that the bridge looks so small in the first!
