Over two million visitors come to see the misty Multhnoma Falls Oregon, every year. If you happen to drive in the Columbia River Gorge, you should stop and visit it too. Multhnoma waterfall comes down roaring from a 620 feet (189 m) altitude in two drops, and it’s always misty. My husband and I visited it in the springtime, when the trees just started to get green.
But no mater in what season you go there, it is always wet. I have to admit that the whole Oregon is quite humid. However, the micro-climate in the area of the misty Multhnoma Falls is especially damp. It’s always a good idea to wear a jacket when you go there 🙂
You can see the fall from the parking area off of I-84, or you can walk to get closer. My husband and I also went into the gift shop and the restaurant, both an a beautiful stone historic building. Great idea to put them there for tourists. In the gift shop you can also find hiking information and maps.

Before you get the this cascade though, you will see other misty waterfalls coming from the top of the hills. You are actually in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. I was first impressed by the power of the Horsetail Falls. It was really coming down spraying water all over the place. I didn’t want to get wet, so I took a photo of it from across the road.
I also took a short video of it that better illustrates its power:
I uploaded the pictures above in my Northwestern United States gallery, and they are available as art prints for wall and home decor. Just click on them for details.
