This was our reward at the end of the hike.
Here's the gang, minus me, ready to hike.

It really was such a beautiful setting. The only negative to the hike was on our way back a young mother had fainted and her poor husband with two little boys and a little girl in a back pack was calling for help. My guy ran to help and then ended up carrying her out. The husband confided that they just found out that she was pregnant. An ambulance was called and she was resting in her car when we left.
We then made out way to two more waterfalls, Horsetail Falls where we had a picnic before hiking to the lovely Ponytail Falls and then on our way back home we stopped at Wakeena Falls. So pretty! I wanted to keep going and find more places to hike, but everyone else was pooped so we headed home. Got a few hours of rest before we headed out again to a big fireworks show in Oak Hills (near Portland).
Unfortunately, as my husband was running to help, he dropped the camera so we didn't take anymore pictures as we thought the camera might be broken. It wasn't, just a little bit wet.
Tomorrow I am headed to the Portland Antique Expo to help Isabel get set up for the sale. I plan to do a little shopping as well. If you are headed there, I hope to see you. Just look for us at booths number 147 & 148. Or, if you see me walking around with this shopping cart, stop me to say hi.
