Multnomah Falls-Oregon '09

Day 2 in Oregon found us once again enjoying cooler weather!! We packed a picnic lunch and headed up the Columbia River Gorge. We drove up the old highway and enjoyed stopping at the famous Crown Point and then Multnomah Falls, the second largest free falling waterfall. The drive was beautiful especially in Mom's convertible. All the way up the mountain Adam was drooling as he watched biker after biker, I have to admit I wanted to grab a bike and give it a whirl too.
At Crown Point: check out that view!
At Multnomah Falls, can you Texans believe that I grew up here??!
We are just too cute!
"Daddy look at that waterfall, I want to go up there!"
Family pic halfway up to the top (minus Alexis, she kept Gigi company at the bottom of the falls).
Adam at the top of Multnomah trying to get his GPS to work so he could make a sweet Gowalla spot. You won't see any pics of the boys and myself at the top because we had to turn around and head back down. The climb was too tough for little legs and everyone knew we couldn't continue carrying them. 11 swithbacks in 1 mile is quite a climb.

GiGi loved showing her boys that waterfall. Their eyes were huge! And real trees - not those short little bushes you call trees in Texas!! We grow them "BIG" out here in God's country!!!! I still have my Stone Towers in place in my back yard that my boys built for me from rocks and bark dust - they may stay there forever!!!
