Wahclella Falls hike - Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

It was just Julian and I Saturday, so we decided to go on a hike to Wahclella Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. This is an easy 2 mile round trip family friendly hike on the Oregon side of the Columbia River. The trailhead is near exit 40 off I-84. It is an out and back hike with a loop about three quarters of the way in. The trail passes Munra Falls (literally feet away) before ending at Wahclella Falls.

Camping at Rock Creek Reservoir and fun on a Polaris RZR

It has been awhile since we last camped at Rock Creek Reservoir, so we booked a couple sites and took off early Friday for a fun weekend of camping. It was one of the only weekends I was able to find sites suitable for our trailer. Rock Creek Reservoir is a 100 acre lake (when full in the Spring) located in Tygh Valley within the Mt Hood National Forest (SE side of Mt Hood). The lake is about 6 miles WSW of the town of Wamic and is stocked several times each Spring with rainbow trout.
