about



I Heart Pacific Northwest is designed and written by Lisa Holmes, a graphic designer living in Portland, Oregon. When I’m not designing websites or print materials at my company, Yulan Studio, I like to spend time hiking and exploring the surrounding areas.

This site is a chronological history of every hike I’ve done since moving to Oregon from the Midwest in 2007.

Wahkeena-Multnomah Waterfall Loop

On this classic Columbia River Gorge hike, view six waterfalls, including Oregon’s highest, and hike alongside two cascading spring fed creeks meandering through lush greenery, and old-growth Douglas fir.
