A Birthday bucket list
I’d been pining for a stay at Silver Falls all summer, but we’d already had to cancel two planned trips when other things came up, so it was a great birthday treat to head there for two days in July before our big month-long trip.
The campgrounds are forested and secluded, but just a short walk to all the hiking trails, including the Trail of Ten Falls — truth in advertising, even the most cynical of hikers would feel unicorns, kittens and rainbows swell in their hearts hiking over, behind and under 10 falls along this 8 mile loop. We got in a good long hike, drank the champagne that had been hanging out in our fridge for a special occasion and made some amazing campfire meals.
We could easily have spent a week or two here exploring the park and nearby Silverton, which has plenty of bites, supplies and sips.
