Hiking at Silver Falls

Jennifer and I have decided to try to take a family hiking trip once a month. For our inaugural trip we loaded up the truck with rain gear and headed to Silver Falls State Park. The morning had been mostly without rain, until that is, we were ready to get on the trail. It was at this point that the downpour started - not a drizzle, not rain, but the full on downpour. We donned our rain gear and set off on the Winter Falls Trail.




The downpour turned to rain after about 15 minutes. The rain only lasted for about 15 more minutes before turning to a drizzle. After about half an hour or so of drizzle we actually had sunshine.

We were wet, but happy. We saw a total of seven water falls in approximately a 2 mile hike. Harrison wanted to count Double Falls as two and Twin Falls as three which would have given us a total of 10 water falls! The kids are excellent hikers, even under such inclement conditions.
