    Looks like a great time in the Gorge. That place will certainly put a whipping on ya.

    Great video, at 10:42 that is what it's all about, laying in the hammock having a cup of whatever with the falls in the background!

    Good video. Thanks for taking us along. I'm curious about what the fellow is wearing at 12:07,,sort of like a ribz pack.

    Thanks all. It was a great trip indeed.

    And Bill, that is a Conterra first responder chest rig. I am on several SAR teams and I always wear it...even when not on duty it carries stuff in a handy spot, including GPS compass, etc....great setup IMO.

    Yep....the Gorge will snatch your buttocks off ya' and hand it back as it delivers a wondrous gift. Always worth the trip there.
    The Cathedral Falls site is a treat.
    Glad ya'll had that time there.
