Colder Still


I had a pretty long chunk of time off during the holiday season and though I was in perpetual new puppy mode for most of it, I did manage to get out into the elements with my boys and one of their friends for a cold afternoon hike to a new waterfall I hadn't been to before.

Dry Creek Falls is located a little over 2 miles from Cascade Locks on the Pacific Crest Trail. The trail winds through beautiful forest, around giant boulders and under a power line clearing. Contrary to the guidance given by many of the online resources, the trail is pretty straightforward.

I never did find a straight answer to the one question all 3 boys kept asking- "Why do they call it Dry Creek when there's always water in it?"

I don't know guys. Just enjoy it.
