Punchbowl Falls Hike & Swim

There is a plethora of waterfalls along the Columbia Gorge but the hike to the Punchbowl Falls is the most memorable. It’s about a 3 mile hike there and back, traversing a cliff at one point, then descending down toward the falls. In order to get the best view of the waterfall, we swam through ice cold water to perch ourselves on a closer rock. Being my first time swimming to a waterfall, it was quite an adventure! We went fairly early to escape the crowds. Best time to go!

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
