Punchbowl Falls

Ever since we got here we have been wanting to go these waterfalls called Punchbowl Falls right outside of Portland.  Eric went last summer and loved it so much, and I couldn't wait to go!  Last week was just about the hottest week in Portland's history so we decided that it was the perfect time to head out to the falls and get some relief from the heat.  The falls are about a 45 minute drive outside or Portland and its a 2 mile hike into the falls.  I've been on a lot of hikes in my lifetime, but I can honestly say this was one of the most beautiful that I have ever seen.  Everything was so green!!  I felt like I was hiking in the jungle!  And the waterfall!  It was like something in a movie!  Seriously, so beautiful!!  The boys all decided to jump from the top of the highest waterfall (about 70 ft). YIKES!!  Eric hurt his tailbone a little bit when he hit the water and the poor guy hasn't been able to sit comfortably since Saturday and he has been relentlessly begging me for a butt massage.  Here are some pics from the hike!

Tinky led the way!

The whole crew!
