You did arrive at a very nice time, while everything is green and growing, and there are hundreds of shades of green.

We climbed down and back up a very precarious, steep, slippery, muddy rock slope to get down to the top of that waterfall. I about chickened out because I was worried about breaking bones, ruining my clothes, etc. but did it for the pics!


#28

Do be very careful, people die on those trails doing that very thing. every year.

And not just the usual amateur dumb fucks you’d expect, but like serious minded people into doing serious outdoor shit…


#29

Put Abiqua Falls on your list, I have never been, I have heard the hike in is not the easiest and best done in dry weather…but check it out.


#30

Love the mirror lake shot. Love it.


#31

Speaking of Mirror lakes photo ops. check out Trillium Lake if you get a chance.


#32

I loved looking at these shots :clap:


#33

We wanted to go to Mirror Lake but they had the parking lot blocked off, so we end up hiking on a trail right off the highway at Mt Hood National Park, around the base of Mt Hood… we were already pretty high up and then we hiked up to higher elevations and you could see snow on top of a mountain across from us at about the same elevation, we could see our breath but I we were warm from hiking up the mountain. Once we started heading back down, took a little break, it got really cold, fast… I didn’t even really know where we were until I got back or I would have drove up the side rode we pulled off of.
