On November 11 my friend Jeff from Cranial Aperture and I went up to Silver Falls State Park. We hiked down to the North Falls. Although I have been to Silver Falls many times, North Falls was a first for me and I was captivated by the beauty at the base of the falls.
On January 1, during our below freezing temperatures, I thought it would be fun to go back up there and besides, Karen had not seen the North Falls either.
This was probably one of the most dangerous hikes I have ever taken. The trails were covered with slick ice. Icicles that occasionally let loose lined the walls of the canyon.
Still, I was bound and determined to see the North Falls in the dead of winter.
Yesterday, April 17, we went up for an almost spring day hike.
The falls are a tad bit unique because the trail goes behind them. The roar of the water pouring down 136 ft. was almost deafening
