    That sounds like my kind of day! Mexican, beer, and a hike to such a pretty place. Even with the rain, it sounds fabulous.

      It was a great day…and it ended with pizza. Hehehe

    we LOVE Laughing Planet, and I choose the southwestern chile burrito, too! my favorite is the NACHO MAMA chili and Jason ALWAYS gets the tricerahops… his favorite beer 🙂

    it has been a couple years since I’ve been to the Falls – it’s a great hike but yes, so crowded, and your description of WEIRD is perfect – although I’ve yet to see high heels!! 🙂 I think all the times I have been there, it has been rainy more than sunny… surprise…

      I usually get the bean and cheese burrito but I decided to branch out. Have you tried the BBQ one? I love Tricerahops too. I wish we could buy it in the grocery store.

      Multnomah Falls is weird for sure. I always see bizarre things. Bizarre foot wear, weird people….

    Multnomah Falls, actually. That’s something I want to conquer. I mentioned this on your facebook page, but I’ve hiked the falls once, and that was 16 years ago, and haven’t been back. It scares the crap out of me.

      Rachel- give it another try! Take Boone and see how much you can do. 🙂

    Multnomah Falls is sooo pretty!! I’ve only been there once, when my parents were visiting from Norway. We couldn’t convince my parents to hike in the rain, so JK and I just ran up to that beautiful bridge and snapped some photos.

    I remember being intrigued by the Larch Mountain trail – there’s nothing prettier than a larch tree in fall. *must do some research*

    1. Lisa Eirene

      When Michael’s dad and stepmom were visiting my Texas we convinced them to hike it! They had a great time. I really want to finish the rest of Larch trail but something always prevents me from doing so. This summer that will change!

    Whoa, what a pretty place to hike! And lol @ the silly people in flipflops & heels. Duh. Your hike wins over the lame hike I did yesterday. It was so drab, YOU got a waterfall! Lucky!

      Most of the hikes in The Gorge have waterfalls, which is really nice!
