    It was a nice hike up to the falls - only about 1/2 hour. I enjoyed meeting Tavonne and Chantal. Great hikers and fun to be with. Bev too! I look forward to seeing more hikes lead by Tavonne and Chantal. Maybe I'll attend a few if I have the time. Thanks for a great hike - it was a perfect day to get outside.

    Great scouting hike on a beautiful day! Thanks Tavonne for your guidance on this trail! Now we have a street address (hee, hee, old Indian Guide trick) which is going to be a big help. The only thing I would have changed is to walk for another hour and a longer distance.

    Hi Chantal, I think you are the only one from the Portland area so I don't think there is anyone for you to car pool with. We look forward to meeting and hiking with you this morning.

    Not sure where people may be coming from, but I am from Portland and would like to carpool with anyone who may be on the way -- I don't mind driving.
