I know it's not summer yet, but it's sunny, and I'm excited for hiking. These photos were from last July. We'll be going from Eagle Creek Trailhead to Twister Falls, a 13-ish mile out-and-back hike. Depending on the season, there will be more falls and/or swimming holes.
  1. But first, let me take a selfie. 🙃

  2. This is Punchbowl Falls, the lower falls/swimming area at the 2 mile mark. This is a side trail down that adds a little to the hike, but worth it.

  3. This is one of the many wooden bridges you'll cross over.

    This type of steep/narrowness is typical on this trail. I don't recommend children, animals, or those with a fear of heights.
  6. We've now reached Loowit Falls. 3-ish mile mark.

    Awesome area to relax/swim before going to Tunnel Falls.
  9. These are large talus slopes known as "the Potholes".

    And means you're almost there! 👏🏻 (Well, half-way at least.)
  10. We've made is to Tunnel Falls! 6 mile mark.

  14. Back to the trail. This stretch is known as the "Vertigo Mile".

  15. You've made it! We've now arrived at Twister Falls, less than 1/2 mile after Tunnel Falls. This is the turn around point.

  16. But don't forget to swim first if you're there in the summer.

  17. Last but not least, more swimming at Twister Falls.
