Twin Falls Hike

A month or so ago we went on a little hiking adventure since the sun was (finally) shining! We originally planned to go to Snoqualmie Falls, but discovered the hiking trails are closed until 2013! Boo. A coworker told me about Twin Falls and we decided to check it out instead. And we are glad we did!

The trail head is about a 30 minute drive Northeast of our place in Renton, so not too far. We had to pay $10 to use the trail (or, you can pay around $30 for a yearly pass - which we will probably be doing next time!), but I'd say it was worth it. It's not a hard hike, but was just right for me (me, being out of shape). The trial was a little uneven in places... literally within five minutes on the trail, I rolled my ankle on a tree root. But I walked it off and persevered! 

The trail runs along the river and then goes up and back down and then up again until you reach the Twin Falls. It was a pretty hike with all the tall green trees. It's a big change from our desert hiking days in Arizona!

There's a cool bridge that stretches across the falls giving you a great view. Perfect for some impromptu family photos (yeah, we are that dorky with our matching vests. :). Once we got to the bridge, we turned around to head back. It was a fun hike and we will definitely be going back!

Well, Hello There.

It's been a while. I've been super busy with work lately and that means this little blog is getting neglected (sad face here). It doesn't mean I haven't had good intentions... I have lots of fun DIY ideas, but just haven't had the time or energy to type them up or take any photos (but I can't wait to share them with you soon!). 

Anyways, just wanted to pop in and say hi. We are just plugging along in the Kane household... Zachary studying for board exams and school, me with busy season. It's definitely a "this too, shall pass" kind of time in our lives. But, we have a each other and our puppy and that makes us happy (if you want to see more of my little stinker check out my #dailybuster photo and follow me on instagram! @mykane). 

I hope to be back soon with some fun posts, but if I take a while, don't hate me! In the meantime, here's some fun sayings from pinterest that pretty much sum up our life right now. 

coffee, flow, breathe, enjoy, make it happen!

P.S. Andrew Bird's new album, Break It Yourself, came out today! I can't wait to listen! He is our favorite... Are you a fan?
