My first trip down to the gorge this year took me mainly to Wahclella Falls around mid March, my first visit to the infamous falls. I knew that it was a popular place to shoot beforehand..i didnt realize how popular it was with people of all kinds though. There may have been more people than normal due to it being the first sunny and warm day of 2014 that I can recall, but I'm pretty sure Portland and Vancouver had both emptied and relocated there! Not that I should have been surprised as every nook and cranny of the gorge has someone occupying it nowadays..with the easy hike out..surprised there wasnt more now.
Not being a big fan of crowds..I retreated back down stream while everyone else took selfies near the pool area.
