Multnomah Falls, Oregon, in the autumn.

We are at the peak of color change here in Oregon. Got to Multnomah Falls at a little after sunrise. There was a light mist and a touch of sunlight but this made the leaves appear to glow. My camera isn't quite enough to encompass the full falls so I stitched together the top and the bottom of the images I took.

 

The waterfall is accessible from the Historic Columbia River Highway and Interstate 84. Spanning two tiers on basalt cliffs, it is the tallest waterfall in the state of Oregon at 620 ft (189 m) in height.

 

The falls were noted in the journals of explorers William Clark and Meriwether Lewis during their expedition through the Columbia River Gorge in 1805.
