I visited a new spot right up the Columbia River Gorge from my home this past weekend. I have driven through the unassuming tract of land called Shepperds Dell probably a hundred times and never pulled over to check it out. I am so glad I did this time! While the rest of the waterfalls along the Old Columbia Highway were packed with visitors, my son and I enjoyed visiting the Shepperds Dell area entirely by ourselves. The incredibly short walk down about 6 stairs and around a paved bend leads you this viewpoint smack dab in the middle of a gorgeous two tiered waterfall! This is a close-up view of the rushing waters. I will post another photo of the falls from another vantage point tomorrow.
