Don't ever change your ways
Fall with me for a million days
Oh, my waterfall
-- Jimi Hendrix
Lyrics from May This Be Love--the song that came to mind as we soaked up all this magic at Tamanawas Falls, one of my favorite short hikes close to Hood River. After all the rain and snow we've had, the falls are especially powerful this year, gushing and plunging with breathtaking force. However, our wet weather also caused a huge boulder slide about a quarter mile from the falls, so be prepared to scramble a bit which was tricky with our pups, but worth it.
Getting there: From Hood River, head South on Hwy. 35 for about 25 miles and look for a large gravel parking area on your right just before you hit milepost 72. The trail head is marked.
