Not only is this a beautiful, easy hike to the falls you see in this picture but there are three more falls and miles of views from a cliff. While driving on the dirt road you can begin to feel like you are on the wrong path. It is a logging road and there is no parking fee as well as an outhouse at the parking spot-small about for three cars-but no one else is out here.

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon. I like to spend time outdoors and bring along my camera. I like pizza. My favorite color is blue.

While the Portland Japanese Garden is a popular place for tourists, it's also a favorite for Portland residents as it's located right in Washington Park close to trails and across from the Rose Garde.
