It has been a while!
This is not why I paid to have a website. So anyway, since that last trip to Seattle, we haven’t been sitting idly by. We’ve been up and out and about. Up and down the west coast. We went to California, sorta a bust of a trip, but we met some new people in San Diego, then we went up to Washington to basically congratulate my brother and Sis-in-law on making a baby
Congrats! …I guess?
Anyways, but today my lovely wife, Denise, and I headed towards the coast. It was a toasty 74 Degrees today. We could not have asked for a better day. We drove for a while then we got to the foot of the mountain where this trail is located and it was a bit scary at times, having to pull over as huge log trucks squeezed by with only inches to spare. But after 30-some minutes of butt-hole clenched driving we finally made it to the trail head. Only to discover this wasn’t the virgin pristine trail I had dreamt about. We had to keep driving and park on the shoulder a few minutes away, tons of people everywhere, at least we didn’t have to pay the park fee.
Next we walked through what was an amazing forest. You could find all the things you find in a regular forest, the trees, the bugs, the mud, the tourist, the trails, the trash, the random panties on the side of the trail. But anyway, the main attraction of this trail is the AWESOME suspension bridge which is about 1.5 miles into the trail.
Said AWESOME Suspension bridge.
But as you’re walking on this AWESOME suspension bridge, your ears are hearing something like rushing water. WHATS THIS, besides the totally AWESOME suspension bridge, there’s a goddamn GORGEOUS waterfall to your left. So close you feel you could almost touch it. (You can’t really, its like 20 feet away.) Anyway, as you can see from the photo above we stopped to take pictures here for a few minutes, we had to wait for all the swarms of people to get out of our shots.
The GORGEOUS waterfall
After a few shots we kept walking to make our way to the foot of the GORGEOUS waterfall. after another 1/4 of a mile we make it to the bottom. After walking for so long we dip our toes into the nice cool spring water emanating from somewhere. It was refreshing to say the least. So we take a few more pictures, breathing the cool mountain air, ate a cliff bar because we were starving, and headed out.
This is us being all coupley, look at how sweet we look. We’d still cut you up if you look at us wrong
Lastly I give this Trail, 4.5 trail-markers out of 5, I honestly don’t have much to compare it to currently, but the large number of tourist was upsetting, but mama nature stepped up her game with the waterfall. No let downs from her part. Go here if you’re ever around these coordinates, 44.932773, 123.855743.
P.S. Stay tuned for a Documentary.
