We also went swimming in some rivers while we were there...the Santiam and the Mollala Rivers. The Santiam River was beautiful, with small waterfalls and clear, but very cold, water. The Mollala River was warmer, but dirtier water. This was the first time I ever swam in a river!
For our next adventure, we are going to hike Mt. Timpinogas in Utah with my brother, Scott.
