Waterfall at Shepperds Dell

As I mentioned in yesterdays post, I visited Shepperds Dell for the first time this past Sunday. The 11 acres of Shepperds Dell was donated to the City of Portland in 1915 by local dairy farmer George Shepperd as a memorial to his wife. This is a view of the bottom section of the two tiered waterfall, taken from up by the bridge which crosses Youngs Creek. There is a whole other tier above this one, but it is tucked a little farther back in the woods. The bridges designer, K.P. Billner, once said: ''Men of wealth and high position have done big things for the Columbia River Highway which will live in history; but George Shepperd, the man of small means, did his part full well."
