Portland adventure Welcomed by Winter storm warning

So i get a race car Dodge Charger for a rent a car. But can't open it up on the snow and icy roads.
After a slow 40mph drive to Multnomah Falls I find a TV crew stationed to do live shots in the snow. A producer loved the backdrop.
The U.S. Park Service web site says "Multnomah Falls is the most visited recreation site in the Pacific Northwest." Two million people visit each year. Today there were about 20 people here.

Made the short walk to the bridge, not the full mile up to the top of the falls.

"Fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain, the flow over the falls varies, usually it's highest during winter and spring." From the park website: http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/crgnsa/recarea/?recid=30026
"The 1.2 mile trail to the top of Multnomah Falls is a steep trail of switch backs climbing approximately 600 feet to the top of the falls. Leaving from the visitor center it climbs to cross the historic Benson Bridge."

This video is taken from the Benson Bridge.

It was quite and adventure to get there, but well worth it.
