Big Sweet Falls and the Mount Adams Wilderness



Deep mossy greens encase a silver fingered cascade along a woodland stream in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. I’m drenched from head to foot from climbing around in the lower steam wearing a huge shutterbug smile. Joined this year by our 10 month Newfoundland Pup ‘River’ who is already 100+ lbs. and appears to be part otter. Just a beauty of a place! The constant glacial melt pouring through our woodlands is ‘more or less’ the heartbeat of our lush forests. We spent several nights camped on the shores of Takhlakh Lake. Exploring waterfalls on the lower skirt of Mt. Adams during the day and watching the stars over the lake at night.
