Hike #43 Part 2- Multnomah Falls

Here comes part two of our 6 mile trip from Wahkeena Falls to Multnomah Falls. This was my favorite part, the coming down section of our hike. I didn't get many pictures because I was so exhausted and I had to use the rest room really bad, but I will share with you my favorite ones.

Here is is. My favorite picture of our trip. The half mile post. At this point I was so giddy that I wanted to run down the rest of the hill, but my legs wouldn't carry me very fast and I'm afraid that if I tried to run they would have given out on me. I might have just rolled down the hill instead. I thought about it several times, take the quick way down and all, but it probably would have hurt. A lot.

Last but not least the ever famous Multnomah Falls. It was still a little foggy and I had water on my lens so it made the picture a little foggy as well. I've visited this place many times since it's about an hour from my parents home, but I've never come from the top and just hiked down it. 
There were a lot of people there, even though it was a wet day. My husband kept encouraging the people making their way to the top. They mostly gave him weird looks. That's what you get when you talk to strangers.
Alas, once we got to the bottom, our hike wasn't over. We had to walk .5 miles back to the car that was parked at Wahkeena Falls. So we picked up some fudge from the concession stand and trekked back to our transportation home.

We had a great time. One that we will never forget. I would suggest you get up off your chair and take a hike as a couple or group. Its great exercise and its lots of fun.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
