Thanksgiving Day Hike

Last Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) we all went on an easy 5 mile hike to Tumalo Falls. Sometimes during the year you can drive on a dirt road up to the falls, but the road is closed during the winter. It was cold but pleasant out.

Tumalo Creek

Here's the creek below the falls. Small native redband trout are in this creek. Ten miles downstream this creek flows near our house.

And here we are at the falls.

Canoeing 10.30.2005

Last Sunday Karen, Sydney and I went on what will probably be the last canoe trip of the season up in the Cascade Lakes. Ice was forming on the water and soon the roads will be closed. It was a beautiful late fall day.
