Cascade Head Hike

Early this month my hubby and I got to go on a little vacation without the kids. We stayed in a hotel on the beach in Lincoln City. One of the highlights of the trip for me was a hike on Cascade Head. The hike starts in the forest which was gorgeous, but this spot was just ethereal.

Altogether we went down about 700 feet. I think going down first and then having to hike back up definitely makes this hike a bit more intense. Cascade Head Salmon River
