Waterfall Hike

Mt. Hood hasn't gotten much snow lately so to burn off some Christmas calories I decided to go hiking in the Gorge.  I am a little leary of this trail, the sign at the visitor center said there would be ice, but I haven't seen any yet.  I'll be careful.
This is supposed to be a steep hike.  I wonder if I can hitch a ride from my roommate?
Success!  There was room for me in the side pocket, looks like I am going to get a free ride up the hill. 



Lots of places for me to rest along the way. The water was running fast and loud  today. 

Trail junction, I have never been to Devil's Rest before, but I have been to Angel's Rest (it's nearby).  When I am really good my roommates take me to the Foxglove way trail, it's close to Angel's Rest.  Now that I think about it, I have only been to Foxglove way once, I wonder if I have only been good once?  Nah, nevermind there are more waterfalls to see.

My roommate says the waterfall on the left feeds into the waterfall on the right.  The waterfalls are moving fast today.  I saw lots of people on the trail but no ice or snow. Not bad for December.   Happy New Year.

  2. Yeah, the one with the bridge is nice and very popular. Trying to get more hikes in before my roommates have to go back to work.

  3. Oh this is a beary nice waterfall, Little Fox. I think you need a small hiking backpack of your own, that way you could put all your snacks in there.
