About 30 miles from Portland are two easily accessible magnificent waterfalls.
On a 2 1/2 mile hike you can visit both 249-foot Latourell Falls and 100-foot Upper Latourell Falls.
Ferns, new leaves on the maple trees, devil’s club, salal – – – everything seemed to be the bright green of new growth.
Wildflowers were blooming along the trail.
The upper waterfall twists and then shoots a broad plume into the pool below.
The lower waterfall plunges off a lip of basalt into a rocky basin below.
Two for the price of one. You can’t beat that.
