One of the hardest waterfall shot's I've made was here. The crowds were huge. Understandable when one can easily walk to and view one of the highest waterfalls in America. I used my tripod more like a monopod due to the continual jostling and bumping.

Fed by underground springs from nearby Larch Mountain Multnomah Falls is the most visited natural recreation site in the Pacific Northwest with more than 2 million stopping by each year to take in the views.

Enjoy a wonderful Sunday and week ahead!

A shot from the archives.
This is a unique falls, having 2 routes.

"The waterfall is named for Pitamakan, or Running Eagle, a female warrior leader of the Blackfeet Nation in the early 1700s, who experienced a four-day vision quest in the mountains high above the falls. Running Eagle led war parties on many highly successful raids, and was the only woman in the Blackfeet tribe ever to do so, or to be given a man's name.

The waterfall receives its nickname, "Trick Falls", because there are actually two separate waterfalls in the same location. During the spring run-off water rushes over the top ledge for a 40-foot drop, while obscuring the lower falls. However, as the volume of water decreases by late summer, and the upper falls "dries up", water continues to rush through a sink hole at the top of the cliff before flowing out of an opening in the cliff face, thus creating the lower 20-foot falls."

Thanks for taking a look. Always appreciated!

“Takakkaw” is derived from a Cree word meaning “it is wonderful” and/or “magnificent”. That it is. And rather loud.

The falls have a total height of 373 metres (1,224 ft), making it the 2nd tallest waterfall in Canada. The waterfall was formerly thought to be the tallest in Canada, but a new survey in 1985 found that it is actually shorter than Della Falls on Vancouver Island.

Enjoy a relaxing Sunday!

Looking across the brink of the Upper Falls of the Yellowstone at the viewing platform and fellow tourists.
I liked a different perspective of the falls.

A few more pics of the falls in comments.

Many thanks for your comments, faves and suggestions!

Have a wonderful weekend!

An iconic view of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone river seen from the Lookout Viewpoint.

This is the spot where Thomas Moran painted the Lower Falls to inspire Congress in 1872. The painting played a crucial role in convincing the Congress make Yellowstone the first national park. He allegedly wept over the lack of colors in his palette to accurately portray all the hues and tones he experienced and tried to show.

The Red Rock viewpoint is below. An adjacent 0.5-mile trail drops 500 ft to Red Rock for even closer views – the average age of the crowd plummets with the elevation (it’s hard on the knees). The trail was closed to maintenance when I was here this trip. Hope it's open on my next trip, as it's the only viewpoint I've not enjoyed.

Friday is here. Have a fabulous day and weekend ahead.
