When the suitcases come out, I know what’s next–I stay home. But Mom packed one for me! And took my new comfy bed out to the car.
Obviously I DIDN’T know what was next–I was soon to find out.
Lots of sleepin’ later we stopped for the night and !WOW! we went for a hike. Mom hopes some of the pictures turned out so I can show you. Of course, she forgot the camera cable…
Mr. N: May I have the next dance?
In my last post, we were hiking to Wahclella Falls–I left you just before reaching our destination. So now I’ll finish my adventure.
We rounded a corner and there it was!
One of the prettiest falls we’ve seen. Mom took a short video…the roar of the water dropping into the creek is something you don’t want to miss.
We all had dirty feet by this time and still had to walk back through a very muddy section of the trail (check out Mr. N’s blog to see how muddy it was!) We all enjoyed a foot dip in the creek at the end!

Mr. N and I drove into the Columbia Gorge to Wahclella Falls - our next hike. We have been fortunate to have fairly nice weather recently as winter hiking can present numerous challenges. Even so, it was quite muddy on the trail, but that didn’t bother me a bit! You see, I was already muddy (and a bit stinky from a roll in coyote skat) from our stop at 1000 Acres.
This lollipop loop trail is considered “easy” (300 foot elevation gain) and is only a 2-mile round trip. But the scenery definitely made up for any ‘shortcomings’. 😃

Of course, Mr. N and I had to do some stump sitting along the way!We crossed a bridge so close to Munra Falls that I could reach out and touch the water!

We found a cave but Mom’s pictures didn’t turn out very well. But, this was another spot that could have been a cave (but wasn’t).We took one fork of the lollipop loop that rose high above Tanner Creek. It was pretty impressive!

I knew we were close to our destination–I could hear the falls.So don’t miss the rest of this hike. You’ll love it!
The hike to Wahclella Falls was one of the prettiest yet. Come back for more!
