    My rainbow calling me

    Through the misty breeze

    Of my waterfall…

  1. (goes better with photo, at least the chorus, if you have the kind of sense of humor I do).

  2. Might you recall where this was taken?  

    The photo reminds me so much of Punchbowl Falls, which is located along the Columbia River Gorge, due east of Portland, Oregon.  The old Columbia Gorge Highway, a project spearheaded by Sam Hill, constructed from 1913 to 1922, takes those preferring a slower pace to nearby Interstate 84, past numerous beautiful waterfalls, including the best known, Multnomah Falls, a two-step waterfall, with an initial drop of 542 feet and a lower drop of 69 feet.  Its overall height is listed at 620 feet.  

    Here is a brief summary from wikipedia:

    Punch Bowl Falls are a group of famous waterfalls on Eagle Creek in Hood River County, Oregon, United States. Eagle Creek drains into the Columbia River, with its outlet on the Columbia River Gorge in Multnomah County.

    The biggest one is 35 feet (11 m) tall and 10 feet (3.0 m) wide. Eagle Creek cuts through a narrow channel and shoots powerfully into a large bowl that resembles a punchbowl. This waterfall was responsible for the waterfall classification type of punchbowl.

    Here’s Punchbowl Falls…

    And Multnomah Falls, which, according to the U. S. Forest Service, is the second-highest year round waterfall in the United States…
