Last weekend, in celebration of the start of my 41st year on the planet, I spent a few days with my pal Sassy exploring areas around Hood River that I had not visited before. Believe it or not, there are still corners of the Gorge I have not seen before.
On the last day of our trip, we decided to take a drive up to Trout Lake, and spend some time exploring around Mount Adams. I haven’t spent much time around that area, so we were kinda flying blind. We picked a Forest Service road, and just started driving.
Big Spring Creek Falls is one of those spots we stumbled upon. We were overjoyed to find such a beautiful, moss covered waterfall. Sassy sat and took in the peace of the place, while I climbed all over it with my camera and tripod.
This truly a magical spot. Granted it was Monday, but we only passed a handful of other cars the entire day. I look forward to going back and exploring this area more, away from the crowds that you find in other parts of the Gorge and around Mount Hood. There is nothing these two explorers enjoy more than “discovering” a new waterfall.
