Nice hot day for driving to the gorge and visiting some of our favorite falls. First stop Bridal Veil falls.
Bridal Veil falls:
After an awesome hike we have a clear view of the bridal veil falls. Sempi takes in the view and announces, “Appa I’d like to pee now”. Of course, you do.
—Zinger between me and Yoshi.
Me: Do you think it is named Bridal Wails falls because it sounds like a wailing bride?
Yoshi: I can see why you would think that, but the wailing you saw at our wedding is a special spectacle, I had my reasons. No one does that.
On our hike back from the falls, I convinced Sempi to say that the falls ran out of water. He wasn’t quite convincing, but he tried his best. Unfortunately none of the hikers heard what he said. Oh well, we’ll try it again next time.
After Bridal Veil we were trying do decide which one to visit next. The top contenders were Multnomah falls or Wahkeen falls. Multnomah falls won hands down because they have soft serve ice cream. Priorities!
Once we got our soft serve cones and started walking up, Sempi became increasingly distraught that his cone was melting. So I generously offered to switch his cone for mine. He agreed and we switched for a minute but then he realized my cone had very little left in it and promptly switched back.
A little while later…
Sempi: Appa can you just eat the ice cream so I can eat the cone?
But unfortunately before I could do any damage to his ice cream, he changed his mind.
After the ice cream is done we were sitting at a bench and admiring the view.
Sempi: Appa do they turn off the water at night when they close the gates?
