LOWER LEWIS RIVER FALLS

194 miles completed

September 1, 2018

This year we found ourselves in Southern Washington for our Labor Day weekend adventure. Our ultimate destination was Mt. Adams, but we couldn't resist making a side trip on the way there. The “hike” to Lower Lewis River Falls, is really more of a walk. It's not my usual type of day trip but I'd heard about how beautiful it was and since we were in the area anyways I couldn't pass it up. And I'm glad I didn't because the falls did not disappoint.

At 43 feet high and 200 feet across, the water Cascades over moss covered rocks into a beautiful lagoon. We attempted to get Kayuh to swim, but she was not having it.

We headed up to the top of the falls where people were cliff jumping to the pools below. We laid out on the rocks, soaked up the sun, and listened to the sound of water crashing below us.

It was a perfect mini adventure to get some relaxation in before the big climb.
