I headed down to Silver Falls State Park to finish the 10 falls trail. Dogs are not allowed, so I wasnt able to finish the trail, 2 years ago. I added some of the perimeter trails on my way back. Well worth the visit.

Crossing another off my to-do list. I have been hesitant to visit this one since its supposed to be crowded. I figured an overcast Monday afternoon would be a good time to hit it. While there were still quite a few cars in the lot, the place was nowhere near capacity and once on trail the loop is big enough to still afford some solitude.

Very well graded trail that is easy to follow (and very runner friendly). I somehow didn't notice Twin Falls when I ran the loop, must have somehow ran right past it ](*,) - although the rest of the falls were well marked and very easy to see.

Oregon people must not like to swim where they photo.

This is a great place to be. I couldn't help think that Phoenix's White Tank waterfalls trail costs $6 per vehicle and contains no more than zero waterfalls. Oregon's Silver Falls contains at least 10 big ones and costs $5 per vehicle.

Most of the beautifully kept trail unfortunately keeps you out of the water. Sometimes there is a viewing deck high over for you to stretch and see the falls from above. That wasn't quite good enough for us and the camera.

How could you not swim here? With all the foot traffic, only one guy and his two kids finally joined us down at one of the falls. Everyone else just gawked at us from the aboves :)

We had almost full sun all day.

This was just one day of a weeklong Oregon trip.

Took my wife to see the difference in the Falls from last October. Much more water flowing this time.
