Hike to Big Creek & Otter Falls

Driving up to the trail head took us longer than we thought it would. 12.5 miles on a VERY rough dirt road full of potholes. We did a 10 mile round trip hike to Big Creek Falls, with a small side trip to Otter Falls and Lipsy Lake. All I can say is WOW, freaking beautiful!!! Loved the falls!!! And loved walking next to the beautiful Taylor River.  The trail was ok too. Pretty quiet and not a lot of elevation, but it was very rocky. My feet were hurting for the last three miles back to the car. Still worth every minute to see the views and enjoy the fresh air, not to mention good conversations with a wonderful lady (my friend Steph). If this is our first hike of the summer, I can’t wait to see what’s next (which may end up being a month away with our busy schedules)!

Here’s a few pictures… really need to invest in a real camera, the iPhone just doesn’t do it justice.
