Sahalie and Koosah Falls

Koosah falls.
 WHENJuly 13, 2014

WHERE: Along the McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass and West Cascades National Scenic Byways off Highway 126, Eugene, OR. We walked the Water Falls Loop Trail

WHY: Chris had been wanting to explore these falls and we were blueberry picking nearby. And why not? It is a beautiful hike with two big falls to view.

WHO: Chris, Diana, Venice and Xander.

Flowers at the bottom of the loop.

WEATHER: Humid and warm with thunderstorms! We were all a little nervous with the thunder, hoping lightening didn't come close. We were grateful for all the tall trees surrounding us.

Approximately a 3 mile loop
Elevation is 2,800 ft.

"I enjoyed the bridge that you cross the river on, because it was just a log suspended over the river with a handrail. It was dangerous and that's what made it enjoyable. " - Venice

"It was kind of scary hearing the thunder because you were wondering if was going to strike one of the trees and fall on you, but it was still fun." - Xander
