Portland, Oregon

One day my mom looked up at her office calendar and saw a beautiful picture of a waterfall. Immediately she said “I want to go there, where is this?”

This beautiful waterfall was the Multnomah Falls in Portland, Oregon. We started our day a bit early for our 3 hour car trip to Oregon. When we got to Portland, we first stopped at The Grotto where they had a beautiful trail. The scenery was nice and gorgeous to walk around.

After The Grotto, we made out way to Multnomah Falls. My goodness, these falls were beautiful. It’s not a long hike to get to the bridge to see the falls, but it is a pretty intense hike to get to the top of the falls. I did try to get to the top of the falls, but only made it to 4 out of 11 switchbacks. The steepness of the trail was just way too much to keep going, so I unfortunately wasn’t able to see the top. If I wasn’t hungry and it wasn’t so hot, I would’ve probably been able to do this. But if you’re in shape and can handle the incline, you can definitely accomplish this trail! I’m sure the view was absolutely stunning.

After a few stops at some stores, it was finally time to eat! We stopped by the Thirsty Lion Pub & Grill and boy was this place delicious! I got a sampler of some local beers and ordered the Gastropub Burger – a gorgonzola infused burger with grilled sweet onion, maple pepper bacon, white cheddar, arugula and horseradish cream. Mmm… just thinking about this burger is making me hungry right now.
