Headed out with my sweetie for hike in the North Bend area. We planned to do the Iron Horse Trail: Upper Twin Falls to Mine Creek. Yah right…with only 800 strangers and way too many cars. With my sweetie as the navigator (yes I am driving)….we headed to the Pratt River Trail in the Alpine Wilderness. It was beautiful and just right for someone getting back into hiking. Plenty of parking, very few humans, and beautiful scenery along the way. Saw some older growth trees and a very peaceful waterfall.
