Multnomah-Falls-16007n.jpg

The falls drops in two major steps, split into an upper falls of 542 feet and a lower falls of 69 feet, with a gradual 9 foot drop in elevation between the two, so the total height of the waterfall is conventionally given as 620 feet. The two drops are due to a zone of more easily eroded basalt at the base of the upper falls
