Amazing! A definite WOW!

My husband and I did this hike in July 2015. We took the pretty straight route (ha!) to get there. A wonderful hike. We always start early to see wildlife that otherwise might be gone already. The enormity of the cave was just overwhelming. We had only one head lamp and went back into the cave through the smaller hole. I was very curious as to where the opening was that the wind was coming from. I could have stayed there all day and kept going, however, my husband is not a small cave, crawl through the small openings person and I didn't want to go by myself. I'm thinking that's not a good idea. We went down below the waterfall and still felt very small indeed. I would definitely do this hike again and come more prepared.

Worth the wade!

Visiting some Portland friends, (I'm from TX) she suggests this hike. It's already on my want to list. I loved climbing over the log jam. The water was down and when we got to the deep part it was up to my chest. I'm 5' 2.5". Chilly is not the word I would use for the temperature of the water AND still it was an amazingly beautiful gorge. A lot of people the day we went. I would definitely recommend this hike at least once!
