Silver Falls State Park
Maree and I met up with Emily and Jim for a nice five mile hike through Silver Falls State Park, about an hour and half south of Portland. The park boasts ten waterfalls, five of them over 100ft tall, and gobs of lush scenery. We parked one car at the southern trailhead, and the other at the northern end, and had an easy hike that was mostly gently sloping downhill along the creek. The water flow was lower than what I'm accustomed to, but the falls were still spectacular. I'm trying something new this time, using a Picasa Web Album to show the pics instead of posting them all on the blog. Just click on the pic below and then press the Slideshow button above the first pic. Let me know if you like this way better.
