Rhododredron at Multnomah Falls

It was a Friday before the crowds arrived. The rhododendron in the foreground against the out of focus falls in the background provides an exquisite composition.

Speaking of crowds. We visited the falls early in the morning on Friday and Saturday. Both days, especially Saturday, the crowds were very very small. But on each day we went by the falls in the afternoon. Multnomah Falls is right off the Interstate and you wouldn't believe how many people pack into that place, unless you've been there of course. I just can't imagine my only experience with this or any of the falls in the gorge being so filled with people.

There is alot to be said about getting up before the crack of dawn not just to catch a beautiful sunrise but also to have an intimate encounter with nature, minus all of the people.
