Winter Respite

Spectacular Multnomah Falls is on a tributary of the Columbia River in Oregon. Formed by glaciers years ago, these falls form the second highest waterfall in the United States. They fall 621 feet (189 meters) from their origin on Larch Mountain to Multnomah Creek far below. The climate, generally mild, occasionally embraces unusually cold weather, turning the falls into a frozen mass of icesicles. Usually some water still trickles down a waterfall cascade, but at times the falls have been frozen solid. A recent cold front made the frozen waterfall a sight to behold!
