  • A Summer day spent in the Washington backcountry... those times and moments will always be vivid in my mind. For that I’m forever grateful 🌲  #24daysofgratitude

  • Finally made it out to the mansion yesterday morning. Unfortunately conditions were not spectacular, but they did provide some pinks for a fleeting moment.

  • I once found a spring arising from a mountain top, its water cold and fresh.  At fist it seemed a novelty, but later it's very nature became perplexing. Where and how deep was that fertile water born? I wondered what that tiny spring will look like someday, when the mountain is gone, and a broad valley cradles gently, a flowing ribbon of life.

  • Welcome to Snow Edition✨

📍Strathcona Park, British Columbia
#hikerlife // @adventurewiththetwin
.
Located 41 km northeast from Tofino and 27 km southwest of Mount Albert Edward here sits Tom Taylor. A mountain that is primarily made up of granite. Which makes it quite unique. Also one that is less trafficked, it was very overgrown making our way to setting up our camp a few 100 meters below.
.
This is exactly how I imagine marrying this man, but our family couldn’t all go. So I’ll settle for an elopement on the stunning beaches of Tofino. I don’t know when I’ll be summiting mountains like this one again. But when I do I know it’ll be epic.

  • I told you I’d share our Thanksgiving week hikes with you! Our first hike was along Sweet Creek Trail, south of Mapleton. This forest feels mythical! It’s amazing! There are actually 4 waterfalls along this 2.2 mile trail. This is one my favorite hikes! Head over to @kidshikeoregon to read the details!

  • Sweet Creek Trail feels mythical. The forest around it is a tangle of moss covered trees and vines. Sweet Creek spills down through the canyon with little water falls all along the way. The trail has built in bridges that wrap around rock edges and hang out over the water. It’s beautiful! It’s easily on my list of favorite hikes.
.
The trail head is 11 miles south west of Mapleton off of Hwy 126 between Eugene & Florence. Coming from Eugene, you’ll turn left (south) onto Sweet Creek Road right before crossing the Siuslaw River. The trail head is 11 miles down Sweet Creek Road. The parking lot is small and I imagine it fills up quickly in the warmer seasons. There is a rustic vault toilet at the trailhead. Signs warn that there have been car break ins at this location so leave valuables at home or stick them in your pack.
.
This out and back hike is 2.2 miles with an option to hike an additional 1/10 mile to the the upper viewing platform. The trail is incredibly child friendly. It’s smooth and well cut out as it winds alongside Sweet Creek. The first 1/2 mile has many bridges and overhanging boardwalks. You’ll see other falls along the way...Split Falls, Annice Falls and Elk Wallow Falls in that order as you hike in.
.
Sweet Creek Falls is the destination. This beautiful waterfall has 2 tiers. Pictures don’t do justice to how big it really is. The upper viewing platform will give more perspective. The hike out feels fast with a mild downhill grade.
.
All together this hike is a 10 for kids in my book.😉 It’s the perfect distance with waterfalls scattered all along the way.  The bridges and boardwalks make it exciting and break up the monotony for kids. It’s a must!!! We just hiked this in late November. So, if the higher mountain trails are full of snow, head to Sweet Creek Trail for a gorgeous hike!
