Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

The Columbia river originates in Canada, flows North West for a bit and then flows south to enter Washington state. It then flows east, forming the border between the states of Washington and Oregon, before finally entering the Pacific ocean.
The Columbia river gorge area, east of Portland is full of many spectacular waterfalls and hiking trails. Bridal veil, Ecola, Fairy, Lautorell, Oneonta, Punch Bowl, Multnomah, Ponytail, Triple falls, Wahkeena.... are only just some of them. Then there is Silver Falls, the state park to the south, that is home to not one but ten waterfalls.

Here are pictures from the area around the Horsetail falls.
