The day continues along the Historic Coumbia River Highway.  Next stop, Shepperd's Dell:

 Shepperd's Dell Trailhead

 Long Narrow Falls best seen from the top of the trail

 Looking Back...

 Very easy and short trail; You must look up to absorb the beauty!

 Don't fall in!

There are no other alternative routes from here so Ayden and I ran back to the car.  The drive continued less than a mile to Bridal Veil...

 Bridal Veil Trailhead

Ayden did not want to walk with me on this one because he did not immediately see the falls.  I ran up a bit and then turned around.  Truly, this was not fair to my wife and Alyssa.  The rain was constant and she was not interested in soaking her cast...

 A random waterfall further up the road...

Looking over the Columbia River

Jumping back into the car, the best falls are yet to come...
