“Lovely greenery at Multnomah Falls. 🌲 There are so many accessible falls along the Columbia River Gorge and Multnomah Falls is one famous attraction! I first knew about this place when googling wallpaper from web photo archives. Feels so grateful to have a chance witnessing this place in front of my eyes, such magic with the great misty water and greenery.” | Corbett, Oregon, USA. 📷: @ch3nlin_w#featuredtravelers

The secret is out! We finally told Shelby that we've come to Oregon for her 30th! So excited to spend this special birthday with her.
Kayler, Amanda, Jason and I spent the day driving the Historic Scenic Route 30 outside of Portland. Stunning vistas, tons of waterfalls, and beautiful green trees. Living in Texas makes me miss trees.
I liked the old lodge where we ate lunch (built in 1925) just as much as (if not more than ...) the actual waterfall itself! I love historic architecture. Speaking of which, I’m heartbroken to hear about the Notre Dame Cathedral. Seeing it has been on my bucket list for a long time.💔 When that much history goes up in flames, the loss is utterly incomprehensible.

TRUE STORY: It was cold (in the mid 40s) and it was raining (hence why my hair was completely wet). I carefully pulled out my camera and handed it to my boyfriend. There he was, one hand holding the camera, the other holding my backpack (he also had his own backpack), my giant puffy coat AND an umbrella, while squatting down on the ground trying to balance just to get this shot of me. Midway during this madness, a stranger offered to hold the umbrella for him.
To be honest, sometimes I really really really hate having to do this but then I look at these photos and it's all worth it all over again...
PS. I dedicate this post to all the Instagram husbands/ boyfriends/ besties out there! We appreciate you more than you know! @markfain ♡
According to legend from the Multnomah tribe (from whom the falls take their namesake), the waterfall was formed 15000 years ago; after a young woman sacrificed herself to the Great Spirit to save Multnomah village from a plague by jumping from the cliff, and the Multnomah peoples were saved. After her death, water began to flow from above the cliff, creating the waterfall....
