So glad we started out early on this one as there was probably close to a 40 degree increase between when we hit the trail at 8 am and hot back to the truck around 2:30! We were also greatful fr the advice of those who jad gone before us and warned us of mosquitos! We even reapploed repellant at one point.

The trail was clear and not crowded ( we saw 11 other people round trip), so social distancing wasnt too difficult. It was awesome to explore a new area, have different views  of the Cascades, and be in the forest.

After we finished we drove over to Salt Creek Falls and found a place to soak/rinse off our feet, too!
