It was a pleasant day for a drive to Gifford Pinchot National Forest with Mike Penney and Ed Coumou. First stop was about 150 miles south at Cougar Bar & Grill. Nice homey atmosphere with a touch of woodsy outdoors. We traversed a couple of babbling brooks before reaching our final destination: Lower Lewis River Falls. The easy trail made the journey very pleasant. A delightful view of spectacular waterfalls surrounded by old-growth forest was the reward. One could sit and listen to the falls all day long. Ahh….
But it was time to leave, but not before stopping in Woodland to view the Old Grist Mill and a silo.
