Another GORGE-ous shot from our Columbia Gorge adventures. This is Latourell Falls, probably my favorite and most underrated waterfall in Oregon. Everyone flocks to Multnomah Falls, and sure, it’s awesome, but this is a hidden gem with a winding path that leads you straight to the falls in a matter of minutes. The sound of the water pounding the rocks at thundering speeds is deafening. It makes you feel so insignificant in the face of the forces of nature. Humbling. Just to be there, in awe of the world. Taking a moment to find your place in it. Freeing your mind of phones and emails and stress. My prescription for happiness and peace of mind. 🌿 (Check out my stories for a really cool video capture!)
The balsamroot are in full bloom, the days are warm, the air is full of bird song and the sweet smell of green and spring and ephemeral life. Why not make a day out of it! Come hike Tom McCall preserve along the historic highway just outside of Mosier and make an appointment to visit the nursery afterwards and pick out some native plant starts to help make your own backyard as magical as the fields and forests of the Gorge. You can even grab a pint @mosiercompany along the way! We will be closed to the public for most of the afternoon on Saturday (April 27th) while we host the @columbialandtrust 'Making Meadows' tour, but other than that welcome you to call and make an appointment to visit us. You can link to our website in our bio for info on how to contact us. During this busy time of year, calling is best and even though sometimes we have our hands full we do everything we can to get back to you asap!
Before you hit the trail don't forget to brush weed seeds off of your footwear to help stop the spread of invasive plants along the trail!
Its also Native Plant Appreciation week so don't forget to check and see if there are activities or outings planned with the Native Plant Society of Oregon or the Washington Native Plant Society which you might want to join!
