Recently i have taken on a new found love and appreciation for hiking. Not for just anything though lol my hikes have to have a destination, a prize at the end of it if you will. Waterfalls are just that. A nice, cold, refreshing, breath of fresh air PRIZE.
I have done quite a few this summer alone that I have just fallen in love with and I have I think like 20 on my maps list. With that being said, it might be a tie between the beautiful and popular tumalo falls and this one…. PROXY FALLS and all its glory. A short 1.6 mile hike in with two ways to go, lower falls or upper falls. I did lower. You can see pools of water leading up to the waterfall. All the greenery, the moss, the logs, then bam…. The waterfall that is just unreal and too pretty that a photo will never do justice for just how beautiful it really is.
The hike in was super easy, rocky for sure and only about 1 1/2 hours away from bend, oregon. Super close, easy 1.6 miles. I live for those easy ones and it was most definitely one I will do again and again and share with anyone and everyone. It’s a popular one too. As you are walking in and get to the area right before the falls you can see people sitting on logs and near the water just eating their lunch and hanging out. You most definitely bring a suit and swim in the water if you wanted too as well.
Y’all, it’s just fun and beautiful. You can’t beat it. You just CAN’T. Hike all the waterfalls, it’s so peaceful and the views are well worth it. Every. Single. Time.
I’ve got many more. I decided to lighten it up a bit with you guys and just share what I’ve been up to lately because this is it. I’m exploring the beautiful place I get to call home and I want to share it with you. It has also been a way of healing for me.
Grateful for this life I live is an understatement.
Here are some of the captures I got from this hike!
Enjoy loves 🤍
