Our first official stop of the trip was to hike and stop along Waterfall Drive. Now waterfall drive isn't a real thing, but it's the pseudo name we made for the beautiful drive along Historic Columbia River Highway (a scenic byway - Route 30 in Oregon). You could easily spend a few days driving down this 70 mile scenic drive, hiking and exploring all of these trails, parks, and viewpoints along the way (and I would have lovvved to). However, we were on a tight schedule so we had to improvise. A hike, a few stops, and lot of fun exploring this area (I had never even heard of until this trip!).
