I've been waiting for a few days of freezing temperatures for a couple months now so the waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge would freeze. I've always loved photos of them, but hadn't seen them myself or had the chance to make photos.
Luckily there was a long enough break in the wind and snow for the kids and I to drive out there and check out a few. Our first stop was Elowah falls which we just visited a few weeks ago in much warmer temperatures.
The hike in was a little more work than the kids remembered, but I kept assuring them it would be worth it and it was. Emily called us about half-way in and told us that the weather reporters were warning of an approaching storm that was going to arrive earlier than we had expected. That gave us some motivation to push a little harder.
On the way back to Portland we stopped and checked out Horsetail falls and Multnomah falls.
