Falls Creek Falls- Always a favorite of ours

 This picture was taken the day before our Falls Creek Falls adventure from Multnohmah Falls.  I just liked the way the trees framed the gorge.

We set out up the Wind River Hwy into Washington to enjoy a nice hike through old growth forest to my favorite waterfall.  Amy quickly found a hollowed out tree to enjoy.

The creek and the moss were beautiful as always.  Washington forest always feels like home to me.

We crossed a fun bridge and continued to enjoy the creek, the green, and the beautiful moss.  There are a few smaller waterfalls before the main attraction.

We got to Falls Creek Falls and spent a long time cooking lunch and enjoying the beauty of it.

I especially like the upper part of this falls which makes a 360 degree cathedral of water!

We had a yummy lunch- some sort of wrap concoction and just took in the falls.  Amy found some great climbing rocks and was reluctant to head back to the trail.

I'm sure we'll be back next year as this is a great hike with kids and really makes me feel at peace and at home as well.
