Thought I'd post some photos from a trip to Silver Falls State Park on Saturday -- as it turned out, the unruly weather thinned out the crowds, which made for a very pleasant (but wet!) stroll from the north trailhead down to Lower South Falls, my favorite section of trail.

Looking downstream from behind North Falls:

Always a beautiful hike, ESPECIALLY on a rainy day..! :D

Really nice photos, thanks for sharing them! :)

Also, thanks for the plant id, Scouler's Corydalis. I ran into a big swatch of it growing up nicely on either side of the trail on my way back to Wahkeena from Angel's Rest (415) and just didn't know the name. I could ever so subtly smell it in the air though. Quite lovely.
