HIKING AND SWIMMING IN THE COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE

Codi, Laura, Josh and I went to the Columbia River Gorge today to check out the waterfalls, go hiking, swimming, etc. Latourelle falls was very nice, although the water was cold. I dislocated my shoulder a little bit when I slipped on some algae-covered rocks, but the view was worth the inconvenience. Wahkeena falls was nice, too. Multnomah falls was assaulted with hundreds tourists, so we skipped that spot. Our final stop was Oneonta Gorge, where we climbed, hiked and waded all the way back to the punchbowl falls that feeds the lower waterway. I went swimming under the falls. The water was very, very cold. The lighting was poor (it was nearly 7pm) and some funny pics resulted.
