Legend has it that there was young Native American Princess who was so beautiful that the warriors would do anything–anything at all–to win her heart. They dedicated battles in her name. They performed great feats of bravery. They went to the ends of the lands for her, all to no avail. But one warrior knew what she wanted: a hidden place, all her own, to bathe. He created Multnomah Falls, one of Oregon’s premier waterfalls. Whether or not the pool set up by Multnomah’s Plunge was accepted by the Princess is lost to us, but hopefully, it pleased her.

Multnomah Falls an impressive waterfall by any measure, with drops of 542 feet for the upper fall, and 69 feet for the lower fall. Adding to the allure of the falls is Benson Bridge, a footbridge built in 1914 specifically so visitors to the falls could look up at the upper fall, and without moving, look at the lower fall. Simon Benson Lancaster, indeed a warrior at heart, is said to have written the check for the bridge without hesitation and without knowing the full cost.

If you are traveling in the Columbia River Gorge, this is a must-see location. If you’re lucky, perhaps you will even see the Princess.
