Last week we met our friends Andy and Elisha (EAPstudios) for a hiking/photo expedition in Silver Falls State Park. I had never been there, despite being an Oregon native my entire life, and it did not disappoint!

We hiked most of the Trail of the Ten Waterfalls. We had Titus with us in his off-road stroller, and then we used Andy and Elisha's off-road stroller for the camera gear (their 1 year old was home with grandma). Strollering the camera gear was really saving our backs and seemed like a brilliant idea (despite getting a few odd looks from passersby, one lady thought it was so funny she asked to take our picture) until we got to a large portion of the trail that was entirely stairs. There weren't any stairs on the map! After a bit of deliberation, we portaged the strollers down the stairs and soldiered on - which turned out to be a good choice, since there were no other unmarked stairs on the path.
Hiking with fellow photographers is an unusual treat, since they want to stop at all the same places you do, and don't mind waiting while you setup that perfect shot, or scramble around for the best camera position. Here's some pictures from the day...other eyes are always helpful, so leave a comment and let us know which you like best! Thanks!
