Water on trail
Snowmelt dripping down from the tops of trees turning the trail to mud--when we got to the top it seemed like only a little bit of the snow was left, so maybe the trail will be dry soon? There was a lot of mist too. As of today it was extremely muddy! Lots of dogs were covered in mud : ) I think they had some fun!

The bat cave routes were CLOSED. Lots of people were asking where the bat caves were--so I also included a photo of the sign below. I guess the route is permanently closed now?

Lewis River Trail

South Cascades

We're at the cusp of waterfall season! With five waterfalls in a 7-mile roundtrip, this Lewis River hike is one to keep on your April-June to-do list. If you're hiking with creaky knees or kiddos, take in the magnificent, close-in Lower Lewis River Falls. If you want a longer hike with some ups and downs, venture all the way to Taidnapum Falls, 3.5 miles in.
