Dear Diary - 1/1/12

This year I'm going to use this blog as a "Year in the Life of a Waterfall Hunter" type diary. This is the first entry:
1/1/12 - We spent the day in the Columbia River Gorge today. I finally visited Upper Latourell Falls for the first time and it was great. The waterfall looks like they took the top half of Bridal Veil Falls and glued it together with the bottom of Ponytail Falls. The wind was insane at the top of Latourell Falls; I kept waiting for a tree to come down. After a quick stop at Multnomah and Horsetail Falls, we hiked into Wahclella Falls for the first time. It's an amazing hike with a gorgeous creek, an amazing canyon with tons of little streams dropping hundreds of feet down the side of the canyon, and a great waterfall at the end. You even pass Munra Falls on the way, which drops about 3 feet away from the trail. I can definitely see why this is such a popular hike.
