The Columbia river gorge in Oregon state is a wonderful place. Not just it presents beautiful view of the gorge itself but is also home to several waterfalls which meet the river. Usually, to view a waterfall, some trek is required, but that is not the case along the gorge. Just park the car and walk a couple of mins to view some gorgeous waterfalls..
This was taken at Latourell waterfall along the gorge. We forgot the tripod in the car and were too lazy to go back and bring it, so used a makeshift tripod (read stones and branches) to get this 🙂
