The day started out a little slow because we slept so poorly the night before. However, we had a long hike to three waterfalls ahead of us, so we gathered our energy and hit the road.
We found the trailhead with little trouble, and after dousing ourselves completely in Deep Woods OFF, we set off into the woods. I’ve mentioned before how good of a hiker Riesling is, but she absolutely showed us her full potential on this adventure. She was scaling fallen logs and uneven terrain with no problem. I picked her up for a few of the muddy spots, but she was content to give the difficult stuff a try most of the time.
More than halfway into the hike we caught up with two women and a black lab who gave Riesling a good sniff. We borrowed some of their child-friendly bug spray to mist pup because I noticed the bugs starting to gather around her whenever we stopped to let Eric photograph a waterfall.
We saw some lovely scenery on this hike and generally enjoyed being outside tromping through the forest.

Directions to and photos of all these falls will be added to our waterfall database shortly!
