A hike in Silver Falls National Park was what I thought this family needed on Sunday. The park just reopened and although there were people I never felt unsafe in regards to social distancing. Getting there early helped and clearing out by 1pm seems to be working in regards to avoiding large amounts of crowds. That said, I need to get my kids on board with hiking. The two boys in the middle in particular like to complain, complain, and then complain some more.
7 falls! There is so much to see on this hike between the falls and river connecting them. Three of the falls you can go behind. It is beautiful and amazing. We still have yet to try the 7 mile hike that includes 10 falls. Hmm...maybe in another year.
Close to the finish line, 5 miles completed by these kiddos.
