FREE Coloring Page - Multnomah Falls, Oregon

I feel fortunate to live in such a beautiful region.  When I first moved to Oregon, I often found my way out to the Columbia River Gorge and traveled the twisty, winding, Historic Columbia River Highway 30.  I've sat with coffee watching many sunrises at Crown Point.  In recent years, we've spent several weekend days hiking the trails and visiting the many waterfalls that dot that stretch of our gorgeous landscape.  The Columbia River Gorge, to me, truly is a magical place.  

So begins my journey with coloring pages.  I can't think of a better place to start than with the magnificent Multnomah Falls.  It's a beauty to observe from the ground level as a stop along the highway, but it's a whole different thing to hike a mile up the switchbacks to view the Columbia River and north into the state of Washington from the top of the falls.  (Don't stop there.  Your hike on the mountain has only begun.)
