A couple of weeks ago we went hiking at Lacamas Park in the city of Camas, about 20 minutes drive from Portland. This was our first time there and it was a lovely hike in a park that is well maintained and has lots of crisscrossing trails.

A waterfall and rapids visible from the trail.

A few times I got the feeling of being farther from the city than we actually were, like when the trail drops down to the base of a waterfall.

We even spotted some trilliums!

You can get right next to the water, so this one might be worth revisiting on those hot summer days.
