#113 in the Northwest Book (bonus hike).
Happy birthday, Emilia! Along for the ride are Becky, Ben, Margaret, Emilia, Jami, Aiden, Will, Audrey (papoosed) and Lucy (in the Kelty yet again).
Emilia also loves hiking and photography, so we let her choose the destination for her birthday hike. The endpoint was a great set of waterfalls with nearby picnic tables for a crackers-and-cheese lunch. We clambered over the rocks to find some tiny wild strawberries…
And this little guy. I managed to convince the kids we don’t need another pet. This argument was nearly derailed when he jumped on Becky’s neck and she started freaking out.
After the rock-climbing start, the rest of the trail was an easy stroll. Very much recommended.
Notes: Open year-round, great for kids. Dogs would be fine if you avoid the rocks and the falls.
