Yesterday we took a short hike at Silver Falls State Park. It's very close to Salem, but it's been some time since we've been there. A day hike there was on our “summer bucket list.” Spectacular! Hiking behind these falls, you get a pretty good spray coming off the falls, as well as a sense of the power of the water's flow. It was a popular place to be yesterday; the parking lot was full when we left mid-afternoon. Nat brought Puckett, and we met up with Mart-o, Mrs. W, and their youngest son Stretch.
Happy Independence Day, everybody! Be safe!
