From the Multnomah Falls Lodge Cookbook. This lodge sits at the base of the falls-the second highest year round waterfall in America- on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge, which separates Washington state and Oregon. The Gorge was formed 15 million years ago. This area and the waterfall (hiking trails) and lodge are a major tourist sightseeing attraction in the Northwest. (There are other waterfalls along The Gorge too.) Note: the Jan/97 storms did awful damage to the lodge - but it is much loved and will survive.
