Was this a good idea?

So what is a couple to do when they are only two weeks from their due date? Why take a weekend trip to the North Shore to see the waterfalls of course!

Here are some quick highlights:
Gooseberry Falls (in the background):

Temperance River:

And I had to hike in with the tripod when we saw this scene on the Cascade River:


The view from our hotel balcony (we considered camping, but than thought better of it):


One more note: our 'minivan' got 35.3 mpg for the trip. Can a minivan really do that?

Love the pictures...you guys are definitely pros! Sara, you don't look ready to pop yet, but I'm sure you feel ready! Nice hotel, we stayed there once, too.

I suppose the fact that Sara's folks went camping/hiking right before she was born inspired you guys to do it too? But they didn't stay in a motel, did they?

Great pictures but the next pictures you take should be of something BRAND NEW, huh?

I can't wait.

Wow...I love your pictures! How pretty! I see nothing wrong with going to the North Shore. At least you guys stayed in a hotel!

Great pictures and all that.... but what I really wanted to comment about is the fact that you called "it" a mini-van. You must've really listened to your readers comments from your earlier post! :)

I think we're resigned to the fact that we will be the quintessential suburban parents - minivan and all :)
