Being trapped in the great indoors gets to you. After two weeks of papers and finals, and a week at home shopping for Christmas gifts and hanging with the family, my outdoor itch had become too much for me, so I woke up early with the idea of a hike in mind. Being home in the Pacific Northwest offers quite the opportunity for photo-friendly hikes. I chose to do the Twin Falls trail just outside of North Bend, because of its scenic views and because I hadn’t explored it since I was a kid. Enjoy the photos!
