Hiking to Triple Falls

Hikes in the Columbia Gorge are some of the best, so Mr. N and I took advantage of cooler, drier weather and set off to Triple Falls.  But first a stop at 1000 Acres for a bit of water play.River playSince our ultimate destination was near Multnomah Falls, a stop at the Lodge for a bite of lunch was in order (we got a treat or two while the Moms ate). And, of course, we had to have a photo-op at the falls! We were on our best behavior and some of the tourists were ooohing and ahhing over us. 😀 Multnomah Falls

Then off to the trailhead. Our hike has finally begun!Triple Falls trailhead

This was one of the rockiest trails we’ve been on–I’m sure glad I have the footing of a goat! Mom had to pick her way over those rocks so she didn’t damage her knee again.A rocky trailThen we came to a washed out section of the trail that included these rather steep log steps. Coming back down, I was very careful to stay with Mom and not try to race down the steps. Some other hikers coming behind us said I was a very good dog. log stepsWe finally reached our destination–well worth the climb (elevation gain of 762 feet)!

So, what do you want to do next, Mr. N?

  1. I do see a problem here…triple falls, but only two dogs??? Next time let me know and I will go along…it is a long walk to where you live, so I will need advance notice and permission from my mom, but it looks like so much fun!

  2. WOW…. what an amazing view. Great job Sage, keepin a keen eye on Mom so she wouldn’t fall. I can’t wait to see where you go next.
    I’ve never seen water fall like dat. I don’t have falls here… just lots of ocean.

  3. Wow, that was quite the hike – love those falls! Phantom wouldn’t like walking on those rocks at all. He really doesn’t like our new gravel-ly road. And Mom says your Mom is very brave walking both on the rocks and those scary steps. She would never dare do that.

    Happy hiking weekend.

    Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning
