    Brian, have you ever done the hike from Larch Mountain to Multnomah Falls? If not, you should.

    Larry, I have not done Larch Mountain to Multnomah Falls. I've gone up that trail, but only as far as the furthest waterfall, then backtracked and went laterally on another trail.

    Sean did a 53 mile hike from the Barlow Pass across Mt. Hood above Timberline, then down the west face to Wahtum Lake, dropping into the Eagle Creek canyon.

    A few weeks ago Heather and I hiked the old abandoned highway (made in 1914) around Tooth Rock, then came back on the 1870's wagon road that runs over the top. That must have been pretty hairy with a wagon and a team of horses. Location is easy to find... Tooth Rock is where the eastbound lanes of I-84 run through a tunnel near Bonneville Dam. Eagle Creek, where Sean came out, is just east of Tooth Rock.

    It's really nice living so close to the Columbia River Gorge. In the summer when I get home from work we'll drive out to a waterfall and have a dinner picnic. It's especially fun when the roof is off of the Land Cruiser.

    Timb99, what's interesting is when Heather stands next to her two twin cousins on my side. They look like triplets.
