Hike in the Woods

Yesterday Nate and I took advantage of the beautiful day and went for a hike at Multnomah Falls. Multnomah Falls is located about 45 minutes outside of Portland. There are many trails you can hike and we've done several of them over the past few years.

Being that it was Monday there weren't a lot of people out hiking. For most of our hike it was just Nate and I. It was so nice to be the only ones in the woods. It was so quiet and very peaceful.

It was just what I needed after a very busy week.
We kind of lost track of what trail we were on, but we continued on anyway. We hiked for several hours before deciding that maybe we should think about heading back home. It was one of the first hikes we've done where we didn't get to the summit, but we really had a wonderful day.

There was a steady river running along most of the trail that we were hiking on. It was a fairly warm day and we kept thinking about just jumping into the water, and by the end of our hike we found a great spot to stick our feet. It felt amazing after walking for 3 and 1/2 hours.

We seem to always end our hiking days with a a delicious dinner and yesterday was no exception. after much debate we settled on Grain and Gristle and it did not disappoint. We finished our meal with a goat cheese raspberry tart. It was perfect.
