Hiking in Silver Falls State Park

I was fortunate to have the time (ha...I have a lot of time still being unemployed) to go on a hike with my neighbor Doug and the girls (Beth and Tessa) who actually own the house Matt and I love in. We drove down to Silverton to explore the Silver Falls State park. There is a 8 mile hike called Trail of Ten Falls. We walked about 6 miles and saw 6-7 waterfalls. It was amazing.
This is North Falls (136 ft) we saw from the view point on the road.

The first stop on our hike was the stunning South Falls (177 ft). This was one of the few falls that we could walk behind.

The trails were beautiful and the trees were huge. As was this beautiful cedar.

Next was the Lower South Falls (93 ft).

And Middle North Falls (106 ft)

We all had a great time during our time in the forest.
