Multnomah Falls is going to burn

It is one of the most beautiful spots in one of the most beautiful regions of Oregon: the Columbia River Gorge.  Wildfires are currently raging out of control in the Gorge; a 48-mile section of Interstate 84 has been shut down, and many towns are under evacuation.  At last report, the fires are only five miles from Multnomah Falls, a place I have so many beloved memories of.

Before it burns, I want you to see it in its full splendor.

Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge, the area known for Multnomah Falls was set on fire yesterday by kids lighting off fireworks and is causing massive issues from smoke and ash to major evacuations of stranded hikers and towns full of scared and worried people. This is devastating both in loss of beauty and nature and of memories and homes of many folks here. Please send love. This is scary.
