First Day Hike at Latourell Falls

Whenever family is in town we love to show off a hike or two in the gorge. The first day of the new year is billed as a “First Day Hike” thanks to an initiative by the parks system and while we didn’t take them up on an offer of a free guided tour at 10AM we were encouraged to get out and enjoy nature. The clear blue skies and sunshine made it even more enticing to get out and hike this popular 2-mile loop close to Portland.
