Pokin' around Wahclella Falls & Tooth Rock.


Sunday 02/19 we set out on a short hike with friends Kazuko, Pascal, Keiko, Greg (& McTavish!) We set off from the Wahclella Falls Trailhead & first did the Wahclella Falls Trail. We then walked the Old Scenic Highway around Tooth Rock & came back by way of the old Portage Road & the 400 Trail. 6.3 miles & a 1000' of EG. Since he was so close after the hike we stopped in to see Herman the Sturgeon & his budies before heading for home!

Hidden treasures deep in the Gorge!

Sunday I set off with a group from portlandhikers.org in search of a recently reported oldCabin hidden deep in the Columbia Gorge. We found it but sadly Mother Nature had not been kind & it's now in ruins! The Movie was made by fellow explorer "Mayhem".

Photos of the trip can be found here.

Cape Falcon

.... After hiking Neahkahnie Monutain we hiked the Cape Falcon Trail. A 5 mile round trip mostly in trees but with fantastic views at the end of the Cape.

End of the road
 Cape Falcon.

Neahkahnie Mountain


Sunday February 5th was one of those rare days on the Oregon Coast that was both Sunny, warm & most importantly not windy! In the morning we ticked Neahkahnie Mountain off the list of "to do coast hikes".
