A last waterfall hike


Well, we will shortly leave the NorthWest, and it was inevitable…. our last waterfall hike.  Labor day, beautiful weather, so off to an early start.  Good thing too, the trails and parking lots were jammed by the time we left.

Anyway, we chose Triple Falls.  A moderate but steep and rough hike.  And some serious drop offs right next to the trail, so we had to watch where we put our feet.  But again we had a great hike, enjoyed every bit of it, both the uphill and downhill.  And the waterfall was beautiful as well.   Looking forward to next year!

The switch back gives some idea of the steepness of this trail.

Don't look now, but that is a LONG way down on the left!

The trail gets narrower and bumpier as we get higher
