Find out just what the heck I'm referring to - and some listener voicemail - coming up next.. On the Bellingham Podcast

The latest hike to #GetOutThere - Fragrance Lake

  • Tumwater is a city in Thurston County-
    • When the City was founded in 1845, it was named New Market. By 1863 the city was known as “Tumwater”, the Chinook jargon word for a waterfall.
    • Tumwater, known as “Washington’s First Community,” was the starting point for further American settlements at Olympia, Seattle, Whidbey Island, and other points on Puget Sound. It was from Puget Sound that the movement to divide Oregon grew, resulting in the creation of Washington Territory in 1853.
    • Tumwater Falls Park:
      • a one-half mile scenic loop trail along the Deschutes River and three cascading waterfalls
      • A playground will occupy kids, and in September and October, watch the fish ladder, where silvery salmon make their way upstream into the ponds of the fishery.
  • Multnomah Falls (Or)- fun fact over 2 million visit the falls by each year
    • 30 mon outside portland
    • 611 foot tall roraring cascade of awesomness
    • According to Native American lore, Multnomah Falls was created to win the heart of a young princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe
    • At the bridge thats a 69 foot drop
      • The bridge is named for Simon Benson, a prominent Portland businessman who owned the falls in the early part of the 1900s. Before his death, Benson gave Multnomah Falls to the City of Portland, which later transferred ownership to the USDA Forest Service.
