Such an amazing way to spend a day. It was great to have someone else organizing the day and transporting us. Marcus has so much knowledge! We hiked the Trail of 10 Falls, then had about an hour break at the lodge and gift shop while the van was retrieved, before heading to two vineyards. Tip: a case of wine flies free on Alaska Airlines! You just need to buy the right packing materials before you get to the airport. Silver Falls State Park and Oregon are beautiful!

Silver Falls state park is a MUST if traveling to Oregon. Imagine a bright green, lush, tropical rainforest with 10 dramatic waterfalls (3 or 4 of which you can venture behind the falls) on only a mile hike. Definitely an exquisite place to visit! The guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, history, terrain, plants, wildlife and even wine!
