I forgot to mention that we visited Multnomah Falls (located in the Columbia Gorge in Oregon) when Julian and Candice came out to visit. Below is a picture of them on the bridge. I was at the base of the falls taking this picture. By their size, you can get a feeling how high up they were. I believe from the top of the falls, it plummets 620 feet from its origins on Larch Mountain, (The falls are fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain) making it the second highest year-round waterfall in the U.S.

If any of you ever get out to Portland, OR, you must make the Columbia River Gorge one of your stops. Check out this site for more information on the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic areas.
