Latourell Falls {part 2}

In May, I organized a Girls’ Hike to Elowah Falls. Everyone LOVED it and said we should definitely do it again, so I organized another one. Unfortunately it had to wait a bit because life is busy. But then almost everyone bailed!! HOWEVER! Adriana and I decided we’d go just the two of us, and I’m SO GLAD we did… I needed the head space of being outside, and I was glad we got to spend time together. We went to Latourell Falls, one of my favorite places just because it’s so easy and quick to get to, and it has the payoff of a waterfall – you can go to upper falls or take a short stroll down to the lower falls.

Imagine all of the conversations these trees have heard over the years! They’ve probably heard so many juicy details, so many broken hearts, so many hopes and dreams.. it’s crazy to think about.

Hey so I guess I’m that person who brings an iced mocha on a hike. I didn’t even really think about it.

FOR ONCE I wasn’t the one in inappropriate footwear. Adriana was a CHAMP despite her poor footwear choice.. and she’d even asked me if she should wear tennis shoes or hiking boots… and she chose neither! Haha. You do you.

Selfies with strangers, I guess.

        Yessss that sounds like the perfect plan! We’re actually flying out to Washington for a family reunion in August, but just for 4 days. We tried to figure out a way to travel the west coast more while over there, but everything is so expensive! πŸ˜›
