Greyt Getaways • Latourell Falls

Phew, we finally made it to the last of the waterfalls for today.

Plunging 249 feet over the cliff, I loved the gentle curves around the top of the falls.

It was the bridge, that really caught my attention. The curves and diagonal lines were fabulous.

And the view from underneath the bridge was just fun.

The Vista House was our last stop and was it ever windy up there! The Vista House was built in 1918 to serve as a comfort station to travelers along the Columbia Gorge. It is 733 ft above the Columbia and you can see both up and down the river.

Looking east into the Columbia Gorge.

One last look at the Vista House before we headed for home.
