Tim, Natalia, and I hiked the Eagle Creek trail in July 2006.

Full size
The purpose of the hike was to go to Punch Bowl Falls (shown behind Natalia) to go for a swim
since it was so hot in Portland. Well, by the time we actually got to the Punch Bowl, the sun had dipped
behind the trees and the water was a wee bit chilly. There were a few kids jumping off the left side of
the Punch Bowl, jumping what must have been easily 70 feet into REALLY cold water.

I initially thought these were yellow monkeyflowers, but they're not. Points to whoever can tell me
what they are though: EMAIL ME

Great picture of Tim with the Lower Punch Bowl Falls behind him.

The water was RIDICULOUSLY cold but we went for a short swim anyway since we had come all this way.
This is Natalia saying that she's not pleased with the water temperature.

On the way back down to the car, we took a few glamour shots for Tim. This picture became the start
of MOUNTAIN TIM . The song goes something like this:
Mountain Tim, Mountain Tim, MOUNTAIN TIM!
Saving babies, Eating cougars, Mountain Tim!
That's about as far as I got with the song though.
