    As a huge waterfall guy, these are absolutely spectacular. Definitely just added all of them to my list of a must see/do ASAP. Thanks for the great shots!

    Looks very nice. The first photo reminds me of the Danube Bend.

    Waterfalls are so dynamic! I just love watching the awesome power of water. I admit, I always skip pass this trek for fear of the large crowds that I see heading that direction. Maybe I’ll have to try again and be more open minded. Looks like a great drive.

    The last shot is fabulous – the most quintessential shot of the Columbia river in Oregon (at least in my mind).

    Looks like a fun road trip – we’ll have to add this the next time we head south (love the Oregon Coast!)

    Thanks everyone for the comments. It was a very nice highway drive to the waterfalls, all of which I like.

    I just worked this past year on the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail Plan for the Wyeth to Hood River segment!

    They’re planning to reconnect the original Highway Route to accommodate bike and pedestrian traffic along the full 73 miles, in particular providing continuous access to many of the great campgrounds and waterfalls and scenic overlooks.

    For a peek at the trail and trailhead locations, you can sift through the documents up on the state website:

    I’m excited to one day take my [future] kiddos biking along the trail and point out some of my work!

      What a fantastic project to work on! I really loved the old highway, and I’m glad to hear that more pedestrian and bike access is on the way. Thanks for sharing!
