Cascade



This is similar to the cabin where we stayed, built in the 1930s. It's small, the bathroom is an addition. There is no kitchen, but they have added a coffee maker, a small microwave and refrigerator. The kitchen is not an issue, there is a pleasant restaurant and a pub a short walk down the hill.








Walking bridge to the pub.
The Cascade River is the color of root beer from the peat swamps that the river drains. It falls down a series of 6 of 8 waterfalls down to Lake Superior.








The weather was glorious, 72F sunny degrees every day. We hiked until we damaged our old bodies. I feel very fortunate to be able to walk beautiful terrain until I wreck myself, take a nap in and old log cabin, then walk down to the pub for fresh fish and Bent Paddle IPA on tap. 

Life is exceedingly fine.

Sweet! Great place and fine photos, Gunnar. We're having good Toad weather in Oregon ... very wet with a big storm on the way. Fall has arrived and the leaves are starting to get colorful. Love this time of the year (especially when we get some sun rays between the wet stuff).

That we could be in that setting -- last night we had the first furnace weather and the forecast was for the first snow in the high Hills. Today is sunny, but jacket weather. You guys scored with your timing "up dere."
