A hike : Falls Creek Falls, Washington

While we were camping we went for a hike one day.  Falls Creek Falls, in Washington.

And this is what we saw on our way.

We had done this hike a long time time, the same spot.  It was 6 years ago, when Lucas was just 8 months old.

We had been Geocaching then, and this time, without a GPS, we looked and paid attention to what we remembered.

We found it!  And the Geocache box had the same original notebook.  The same notebook we left a note 6 years ago.  Back then, it said, Lucas was 8 months old, we had our Big Dog with us (who passed away 3 years ago), and Siena was just 4 years old.  A complete different hike back then than it was now.

Back then, Lucas in a backpack being carried the 2.2 miles.  Now, we are all hiking.  The same miles, to see the same beautiful falls.  It was fun to remember that trip, 6 years ago.  From something so small, as a short note in a little notebook, we had great talks walking in this time.

I love it.  I wonder if we’ll go there 6 years from now, on another summer day.  Siena would be 16, Lucas 12.  Oh… always fun to think.

And we continued our hike to the falls.

Until we reached them.
