Wahclella Falls

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!  Wahclella Falls

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.

Atop a boulderWe 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!Tanner Creek

Hiking to Munra and Wahclella Falls-Part 2

After a romp at 1000 Acres

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!On a stumpWe 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).hole in the mountainWe 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.High above Tanner CreekSo don’t miss the rest of this hike. You’ll love it!
