Visit the beautiful Columbia River Gorge!  Your adventure will take place along the Historic Columbia River National Scenic Byway, where some of the locations we may stop include: Portland Women’s Forum, Crown Point Vista House, Latourell Falls, Multnomah Falls, and Shepperd’s Dell.

You tour will start with the view from Portland Women's Forum.  This location is absolutely breathtaking and it's one of the best spots to soak in a view of one of the most beautiful places on earth: the magnificent, awesome Columbia River Gorge. 

Next, we will stop at Crown Visit Point House with a complete overlook of the Gorge region.  Crown Point Vista House, best known of the scenic lookouts along the Historic Columbia River Highway, provides a panoramic view of the Columbia River. The Crown Point Vista House was built in 1916 and refurbished and completely remodeled in 2005.

Our next stop is Latourell Falls. This waterfall plunges 249' over a massive wall of columnar basalt, some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest, before cascading hastily toward the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many famous photographers to this captivating location. 
 
Other waterfalls we may stop at while driving on the Historic Columbia River Highway include:
Sheppherd's Dell-  In 1915, a local dairy farmer named George Shepperd gave all that he had (this tract of land) to the City of Portland as a memorial to his wife. The upper fall is around 42' tall. The lower tier is around 50' tall.
Bridal Veil Falls- Beautiful Bridal Veil Falls is an elegant and graceful lady that can be fully appreciated from the deck of a viewing platform rebuilt in 1996. The creek hustles down from the top of nearby Larch Mountain, tumbles over the cliff and eventually flows into the mighty Columbia River.

Next we will drive to Multnomah Falls. According to Native American lore, Multnomah Falls was created to win the heart of a young princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe.  Multnomah Falls is the most visited natural recreation site in the Pacific Northwest with more than 2 million stopping by each year to take in the views! Fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain, the flow over the falls varies, but is usually highest during winter and spring. This is also one of the best places in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area to study geology exposed by floods.

Return to Portland and drop off at downtown Portland hotels.

We saw Multnomah Falls and Latourel Falls. Stopped at Vista Point and the tiny Bridal Veil post office. This was nice but I would have liked to see more falls and skip the post office. Our tour guide was very pleasant and informative, but I felt like he was more interested in getting to know the single gal in our group rather than include the other eight of us in his conversations. Also, the van was full. Since we were two couples traveling together, we took the far back seat, which was tight quarters.

Crystal was an amazing tour guide. She was so knowledgeable and personable! She shared a lot of information and history, and provided other ideas on things to do after the tour. She created an easy going atmosphere while we were checking out some beautiful waterfalls. We highly recommend this tour and guide!

Sara was very good tour guide, very knowledgeable about history and the environment. She had alternative paths to take that were easier to navigate with health conditions.
