Our last two nights in Oregon we spent camping along the Columbia River. The entire area was beautiful, with more sights to see than we could possibly explore in what time we had left. But we did our best!

On of the most amazing things was just driving down a scenic road and being able to see so many different waterfalls, right along the road!

I could have spent days traveling that one stretch of road, hiking the trails to other waterfalls and photographing all the beauty. As it was we had hours. What motivation for a return visit!
