Greyt Getaways • Horsetail Falls

We headed east on I-84 and exited onto the old historic Columbia Highway. Oregon's kinda version of a Route 66 road trip.

The railroad runs beside the highway most of the way.

This horsetail falls, a real roadside waterfall.

Horsetail falls tumbles down 176 ft into a pool at the base.

The Oneonta tunnel was built in 1914. When I-84 bypassed the old highway, the tunnel became filled with debris and vegetation. In 2006 work began to restore the tunnel and it reopened in 2009.

The next waterfall was just beyond this tunnel.
