Hikin' the Silver Falls Trail
Brother Eric and I went hiking with our friend Mike a couple weeks ago, down at Silver Falls.
Grandpa and Grandma Metzger took us here often to picnic. The last time my grandfather came here was when Eric and Calee and I brought him up with us. But he didn't hike down to the bottom of the falls. That was just a few years before his death, and the feat was beyond him, physically.
Eric, Mike, and I had a great time. We covered the trail in about 3 hours, and we were moving pretty quickly. But I still took the time to get some good photos. I'll be hanging onto these memories through the winter.
Then, next summer, I'll go get some more.
