I can't believe I went to Multnomah Falls in August on a weekend. Tourist mecca for the state of Oregon. If we had taken I-84 we would have been stuck in the back up on the off ramp of people waiting to park in the parking lot. Good thing we took the scenic route along the Historic Columbia River Highway, stopping to see and walk in to all of the beautiful falls along the way. How can you not take a first-time visitor to Oregon to Multnomah Falls? It's really not possible. And the only day we could it was Sunday.
So there we were among the throngs of people. I think I could have sat on that bench for hours just watching the tourists, wondering where these people come from. Families, couples, teens, old folks. You name it. They all throng to Multnomah Falls. To hike to the top. To stand on the bench at the base and have their friends take pictures of them with their mouths open, so that when they look at the picture, it looks like Multnomah Falls is emptying into their mouth. (You know, kind of like this.)
And then I saw the FUG. The family that dresses alike in camouflage. Pants, shorts, hat. Cami. You got it. I just wish I had been faster with my camera and snapped a pic of the huge man with a tank top that said Pitbull. Enjoy.
