Hiking the Great Northwest

One of the many pluses to living and growing up in the Northwest is well… the great outdoors! People that don’t know Portland, Vancouver, Seattle, etc. tend to think only rain rain rain, I mean how else do we keep it so green up in our little corner of the States? But beyond all the rain we are actually very lucky; we get all 4 seasons {even if the summer one is a little short}, we have the coast to the West, the mountains to our East and endless amounts of hikes in any direction.

One of the most well-known hikes in the area is Multnomah Falls and even the sliiiightly intimidating weekend weather forecast didn’t scare us away.  That’s the beauty of being from the area… we are no strangers to bad weather… or hiking in it.  With some friends from college in town we decided to give it a go on Saturday morning regardless of the rain.  Little cardio, little off-roading, big adventure!
