The Columbia River Gorge is an 80 mile long, 4,000ft. deep in places, natural wonder that cuts the only sea-level passage through the Cascade Range. In 2014 I spent six months predominantly photographing the Pacific Northwest, the very first place I visited was the Columbia Gorge. The gorge which borders Washington and Oregon is a mecca for landscape photographers, with over 77 major waterfalls on the Oregon side alone.  Many of the larger falls, such as Multnomah and Horsetail Falls, were likely discovered by the Lewis and Clark expeditions as they floated down the river, yet even with nearly 3 million people living less than an hour away, there are still waterfalls in the area that may have never been seen by man, a testament to both the rugged geology of the area and the dedication to preserving the Gorge that has prevailed against decades of increasing population growth.
