Hike #43 Part 2- Multnomah Falls

Here comes part two of our 6 mile trip from Wahkeena Falls to Multnomah Falls. This was my favorite part, the coming down section of our hike. I didn't get many pictures because I was so exhausted and I had to use the rest room really bad, but I will share with you my favorite ones.

Here is is. My favorite picture of our trip. The half mile post. At this point I was so giddy that I wanted to run down the rest of the hill, but my legs wouldn't carry me very fast and I'm afraid that if I tried to run they would have given out on me. I might have just rolled down the hill instead. I thought about it several times, take the quick way down and all, but it probably would have hurt. A lot.

Last but not least the ever famous Multnomah Falls. It was still a little foggy and I had water on my lens so it made the picture a little foggy as well. I've visited this place many times since it's about an hour from my parents home, but I've never come from the top and just hiked down it. 
There were a lot of people there, even though it was a wet day. My husband kept encouraging the people making their way to the top. They mostly gave him weird looks. That's what you get when you talk to strangers.
Alas, once we got to the bottom, our hike wasn't over. We had to walk .5 miles back to the car that was parked at Wahkeena Falls. So we picked up some fudge from the concession stand and trekked back to our transportation home.

We had a great time. One that we will never forget. I would suggest you get up off your chair and take a hike as a couple or group. Its great exercise and its lots of fun.
