Our 10-year Anniversary Getaway to the Columbia Gorge

Yesterday the kids went off with their grandparents so Tom and I could spend a night at the Bonneville Hot Springs Resort on the Washington side of the Columbia Gorge. On our way, we stopped for a 4 mile, “easy” hike to Punchbowl Falls. It rained a little on the way back, but the canopy was so thick in most places that we barely felt it. The beauty of the forest and the scent of the rain was intoxicating. Also, waterfalls are magic, and I love them. 

We ended the day in the hot tub on  our room’s covered balcony, watching the rain and sipping champagne. Happy anniversary to us! Here’s to 10 years more.
