Fairy Falls

The other day Mom said “Sage, I know I just told everyone about your feast with Mr. N and I need to visit them. But, I just had a call and need to leave immediately to take care of the Popstar. Everyone in San Francisco is sick.” Yowzie–I was all set for fun πŸ˜’ and she’s taking off on some magic carpet or something like that.

Then, several sleeps later, Dad puts me in the car and we went to that magic carpet place. There she was!! I was sooooo excited. And I know she was magic because everyone in SF was now well!!

The next day, she made it up to me. I never know what adventure we are going to have next, but this sounded like a good one. First, we stopped at 1000 acres and met Mr. N. We had to run, after all.WaitingThe wind was fierce, but that didn’t stop us! Run we did. After a quick stop for some lunch, we got to our destination and it was a ‘quick scramble up the rocks’ to Fairy Falls. Fairies?!?! I couldn’t wait.

Our trail led along Wahkeena Falls–“Wahkeena Creek falls this way and that, now a plunge, now a horsetail, now a cascade. It’s just beautiful.”

This was our trail. I told Mom she shouldn’t have been walking like she had had one too many, but she said all those switchbacks made it look that way. Whatever that means. Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 5.15.25 PM

Anyway, up and up we went (elevation gain 889 feet).

  1. That looks like such a fun trip!! Vince and Zoe and I hiked to the top of Multnomah Falls a couple of years ago before we got Phoenix. We haven’t done a major “climb” like that again, though, in a long time!

  2. Our maps of our walks always look like I’ve had one too many, too! It looks like you had a fun walk–even if you didn’t stick to a straight line πŸ˜‰
