|North Falls, Silver Falls State Park, OR|
Monday, April 28, 2014, Silver Falls State Park, Day 2 - 0 miles, 7573.3 For the Trip
Quite cold last night - down to 34°F, but the ceramic cube heater kept the trailer at 68°. This morning it warmed up quickly, and I decided to hike the rest of the Trail of Ten Waterfalls. There is a section between the Lower South Falls and the Lower North Falls that is closed due to a slide,so I headed for the North Falls parking lot and started down the trail from the opposite end that I hiked yesterday. I went as far as Twin Falls, then returned. After that I drove to the Winter Falls parking lot & hiked to the Winter Trail junction with the Trail of Ten Falls, and continued until I reached the closure. All in all, I saw all the waterfalls. They are not as accessible as those in my favorite park (Ricketts Glen in PA), but they are far larger with more water going over them. A good hike, and lots to photograph. Don't trust me on the names of the falls - I think I got them right, but...
Lots of photos at today's LakeshoreImages page.
By the time I got back to the trailer I was definitely in need of a shower. Lots of sun, and 72°, and I had far too many layers on. After the shower I sat out & read, and snapped a photo of a new hummingbird. I used the D200 since the other camera was in the trailer - kind of soft, but at least I got him.
Dinner was 2 Amy Cheese Enchiladas.
Until I find an internet connection -
