Portland Latourell Falls

Normally, I would like to get other tourists out of the picture. This time I think they help with the sense of scale, although you don't get a sense of the power of the water as it hits the base. I can't believe anyone would go under this flow and survive if it is coming at full flow. This is the first falls that you come to driving out of Portland along the Columbia River Gorge. I have a guide book with over 100 falls and hikes in the area. Latourell Falls is easy to get to and warms you up for even better falls to come.
