This is the second posting of a waterfall from my day trip up the Old Columbia River Highway two weekends ago. This photo is of the lower portion of the two-tiered falls. The falls were originally known as Gordon Falls. In 1915, after the completion of the OCR highway, the falls were renamed to Wahkeena Falls – a Yakima Indian word meaning “most beautiful”.
