Sunday we went on a short hike with friends to check out two great Waterfalls on the Washington side of the Columbia Gorge about 15 miles North of Carson. First on the list was the Giant 207 ft. Falls Creek Falls There are three tiers to the Falls but only the lower 2 can be seen from the lower view point. To see the upper tier you have to take the Upper Falls Trail. On the way home we made a short detour to see Panther Creek Falls, this is a very unusual waterfall only 500' off the side of Panther Creek Road & though a very fancy viewing platform has been built there is no sign to tell you it's there!

I've sprayed out a 96' diameter circle in our back field to begin a new garden. There are 3 options which one would you choose?
1) A secret garden inside the hedged circle.
2) Make the whole thing a maze.
3) A living scale model of Stone Henge, I'll use columnar trees to represent a 96' diameter scale model of Stone Henge. (I should add that while option 3 is my favorite it's Chiyoko's least favorite :^)..

Sunday I joined a small Mazama group in an off trail hike up from McCord Falls to Wauneka Point. One of the toughest off trail hikes I've done in the Gorge to date. At one point you climb about 1700' in 0.6 of a mile :^).. Wauneka Point has great views & some of the best old Indian Workings that I've seen.
A few more pics here.
