Wahkeena Falls loop (4/21/17)

Late last month, Dad asked me to join him on a hike at Wahkeena Falls in the gorge. Yes, please!

Because it was a Friday and a really nice afternoon, traffic was horrible, but we finally made it to the trail head:
Wahkeena Falls:
On the way up - Lemmon's Viewpoint:
SOOO pretty!
Fairy Falls:
We took a left after Fairy Falls and hiked Vista Point Trail up to Wahkeena Falls Trail. Then we took Wahkeena to Larch Mountain Trail... down to the Multnomah Falls Lookout Spur Trail.
Still some snow in the canyon:
From the lookout, looking down Multnomah Falls:
Setting sun:
Multnomah Falls:
At the bottom!
After a brief stop in the bathrooms and gift shop, we completed the loop back to Wahkeena Falls, tired and satisfied and happy to be outside :)
