Chasing Waterfalls In Portland, Oregon

I've heard it plenty of times from coworkers and friends - they all love Portland and said they'd like to move there some day. I wanted to see its charm myself so I decided to go during the Memorial Day weekend. Didn't take much photos of the city because I spent most of my times there stuffing myself with all the amazing food Portland has to offer (Blue Star Donuts, Pok Pok, Salt & Straw, and many more). My favorite one that we kept going back after was this infamous chicken rice stall.

The next day, we rented a car and headed east towards where all the waterfalls are.

Some of the waterfalls that we visited were Latourell Falls, Wahkeena Falls, Multnomah Falls and Horsetail Falls.

As expected, Multnomah Falls was cramped with tourists :( Should've known to avoid this place during long weekend!

We ended the day with a trip to Trillium Lake overlooking Mount Hood and had a fantastic dinner that we packed from, of course, the chicken rice stall that we love so much.
