    Enjoyable hike to the waterfall, and can climb down on the rocks and get right up in all that misty spray! We arrived at the trailhead somewhat early, maybe 8am and had the falls to ourselves just missing the constant rush of people funneling towards the falls right after we left.

    Wahclella is my favorite waterfall of the gorge so far. The first time I was in Oregon I somehow missed it, so don't make the same mistake! Especially since it is a very short hike and won't take much time away from plans, it is a definite must-see.

    Hocking Hills is definitely the go-to spot for outdoors in Ohio. Plenty of waterfalls, caves and ledges to explore to fill up your days. Also in Logan there are canoe liveries offering trips on the Hocking River, and although going during the day it may be a little rowdy on the river, they offer torchlight trips that are much more relaxed and calm. At the end of the trip there is free live music and s'mores so can't really beat that!

    Jumbo Rocks is like a playground for adults. So many rock formations to explore and climb that give you some fantastic views.

    I LOVE Caddo Lake. It is like something from out of this world. They offer canoe rentals overnight and for the weekend additional to by the hour. Some of the campsites have direct access to the lake (63-65) and would be perfect for the long rentals plus you could take the canoe for a nighttime paddle! Highly recommend it if you have not been before.

    Must see gem in Texas! Less busy in the off-season such as the winter. There is also a trail you can take the opposite way of Hamilton Pool and there are little mini-pools you can swim in as well if you are there on a crowded day.

    Camped here at Little Red Campground which is a walk-in 10 site tent only campground. All of the sites have fantastic views and the rattlesnakes are no joke! Came across a young Western Diamondback that did not know to use their rattle as a warning .so watch your step and wear good hiking boots!

    I am obsessed with Jacob's Well! So fun jumping into an eerie dark abyss. Big tip to get there early before the crowds, especially if you want to get a jump in. Be careful on the rocks as they get slippery and don't miss your target!

    Love Enchanted Rock! Once you hit the summit trail be sure to wander down the Echo Canyon Trail on your way back down. There are little trails that offer some fun exploring. Also hit up Moss Lake for an amazing view looking up to Enchanted Rock.

    This is a must see if you live in Texas. Colorado Bend is a park where you definitely feel like you are in a remote area. Deer will even walk right up to you and will linger around your campsite. Gorman Falls is beautiful and very unique to Texas!

    Did this as a backpacking trip on a rainy September weekend and it was great. Even on the rainy weekend the sites were filled up by the evening that are situated around the lake. There are only a few as some are in restoration. Plenty to explore as you can hike mostly all the way around Melakwa Lake and Upper Melakwa Lake.
