The Annual Trip to Multnomah Falls


Hawks staff at Multnomah Falls

For the third straight year, the Boise Hawks used a travel day to perfection, allowing the team to experience one of the more iconic sights in the Pacific Northwest, Multnomah Falls.

Located a half-hour east of Portland – and on our path to Salem for the upcoming series – Multnomah Falls is the highest waterfall in the state of Oregon.  Split into two different falls, the upper falls is 542 feet, cascading into a pool below, a lower falls is 69 feet high, directly under a footbridge.

The hike was perfect after spending 20 minutes driving through an active wildfire outside of Rowena, Ore., about an hour further up the gorge.  There were flames visible on the hillsides – and got word late this evening that over 250 homes had been evacuated.  A few years back, a similar scene forced the bus to travel to the Washington side of the river to make it home (when a fire shut down the interstate).

Here are some of the photos that were taken while having the respite from the bus.
