Swimming Hole (White River Falls)

by Patrick Mertz
(Phoenix, AZ)

My cousins and I lived on State Hwy. 216, just a mile or so east of the park entrance in 1978 and 1979. We frequently went to the falls during the hot summer months for refreshing swims. I also fished the White River downstream from the falls, landing some nice trout.

I haven't been back to the area since that time, though got pretty close in 2007 with a visit to Portland and Hood River.

Thanks for the photos and bringing back some memories.
