Once in awhile, if you're lucky enough, the gorge will get cold enough for enough consecutive days to create a winter wonderland. This happened last winter, and it was stunning to say the least. To view the waterfalls requires driving with a series of mini-hikes; more like walks down to them. It is very little effort, but it will obviously be cold and windy (it needs to be for these creations to be made).
I moved to the Pacific Northwest in August of 2012. I quickly identified myself as a hiker. I want to document my experiences so that I can refer to them for myself and others to provide the best hiking experience. I also hope to learn more about hiking from others comments and recommendations.
