...no, not that kind of fall, though if you know us it would be easy to think that. And yes there was a big fall from a mountain bike last week.
But these falls are waterfalls. Since the weather has turned warmer we have started to
meander to areas beyond Bend. We went over "the pass" for the first time. Santiam Pass crosses the Cascades from the arid high desert of central Oregon on the East side to the rainy, greener, wetter climate on the West side.
We drove over to take a hike on the McKenzie River Trail on the Sahalie and Koosah Falls. One guidebook described this area as a little slice of New Zealand. Not sure about that, but it was green damp and mossy.
