    Gorge-ous (heeee) waterfalls! The red flower is a columbine, I love them!

      Yes! It’s a very pretty area. If you ever make it to Oregon you guys should check out the Gorge hikes.

    What a beautiful spot for a hike – thanks for sharing your photos!

      Thank you Rachel! Glad you liked my pics.

    Every time I see your pictures of the scenery in your neck of the woods, it gets higher on my bucket list of places to visit! Love Bella’s new toy – how long will it last before it gets torn up? I think the record for our dog was 1 day πŸ˜€

      Actually these toys (and I can’t remember the brand name right now) last a really long time! One of the best toys I’ve gotten for Bella. They last a really long time, she loves them and they don’t fall apart in 2 days.

    Ingunn beat me to the Red Columbine. Aren’t they adorable? πŸ™‚

    Wild iris is the last one, not sure about the purple & white ones, but they are everywhere in the gorge & lower elevations of Hood right now.

    I love that Wahkeena hike. It’s a stiff climb, but worth it. And that second, delicate little waterfall is known as Fairy Falls. Pur-teeeeee

      Aw Fairy Falls! Thank you for clearing that up!

    Oh my what a gorgeous walk, the waterfalls are definitely worth the climb. This is probably one of my favorite hikes you blogged about.

    I miss my long walks so much and I bet Bella does too but 1.5 week down and only 4.5 to go before we can start building up the walks again. Gosh that’s so long πŸ™‚

    1. Lisa Eirene

      That does sound like a long time! I hope it goes by fast for you and Bella. πŸ™‚
