Now you may not know this about us as we haven't mentioned it much but Terah and I are "gourmet eating' hikers. So today on the menu was: cracked pepper turkey sandwiches with cheddar cheese and dijon mustard on multi grain bread. On the side was honey wheat pretzels and juicy oranges. We washed it down with homemade iced Irish whiskey and vanilla latte. Oh so good that it made the climb and view better!

Snoquera Falls and Dalles Falls
We decided that we needed a change.....we've been hiking at the pass almost every hike since last year and we wanted to branch out. We headed to the Southern Cascades as we wanted to see some falls. We found Snoquera Falls on the WTA and found the Dalles Falls as a happy accident. The path to Snoquera is very easy to find. The Boy Scout camp is easy to find...we thought we had been on the road too long, but you will find them with road signs. Missing it would be impossible. Snoquera falls isn't running hard at all--it is mostly just lines of water and mist, but it is still a nice, easy climb. 4 miles round trip and not as much elevation as the site says. We hike all the way up--right to the falls themselves. If you do that, poles may be warranted. I slipped and slid all around--Terah being half mountain goat had no problem. So here are a few pics from Snoquera:
