Cascades

The Cascades falls are the surprise waiting at the end of a cool and forested two mile hike just a few miles from my home.  This trek is very popular among the local college students.  These four braved the slippery rock at the base of the falls before going for a cold swim in the pool.  I am so very lucky to live in a place with so much gorgeous scenery nearby.

Stiles Falls

We enjoyed every minute of the perfect weather yesterday!  One of the things we did was a new-to-us hike to Stiles Falls.  This was a great little hike with several boulder-hopping creek crossings along the trail to the falls.  The falls themselves were a great treat for the eyes and ears.  Hopefully, we will tackle this nice little trail again sometime when the falls are frozen!
