I can’t remember if I have written much about Silver Creek Falls on here, but we hiked there last weekend so I am posting some pictures. It is about an hour and a half from my house in Portland. There are ten main waterfalls. Gretchen, Brian and I hiked five of them. Fantastic day for it – lots of elevation, not very many people (at least for a summer day at Silver Creek Falls).
South Falls is 177 feet tall, and the one most people walk down to even if they aren’t going to do anything else. See the tiny people in the picture? That’s where the hiking trail goes, behind the waterfall.
I’m very certain the heat blankets we carry in our packs for emergencies are not intended to be picnic blankets but it worked really well against the damp. We had strawberries, spanish almonds, Chop Garlic and Black Pepper sausage, Tillamook Sharp Cheddar, Swiss cheese and a loaf of sour dough. There may have been a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely picnic watching everyone hike by. Here’s another picture.
