Oregon Part 1: Multnomah Falls, Mt. Hood & Timberline Lodge

My brother, parents and I recently went on our  first family vacation in more than ten years.  We explored Portland, OR and some of the state’s finest natural offerings:  Mt. Hood,  The Columbia River Gorge, Bend, old volcanic remains and Silver Falls State Park.  While the long hours in the small rental car proved too much for my family (it will probably be our last family vacation for a long time…) I did get some shots of some amazingly beautiful scenery.
