Back to the Russian River Falls

We heard that the salmon were starting to move up the Russian Falls and decided to make the 5 mile hike to check it out. There’s not a whole lot to add to the word picture then we said in the “Our for a stroll” entry from 5/21. The photos as well as video tell the story much better then our words.

There was a significant little difference that has to be mentioned. The parking lot was full so I volunteered to drop Maureen and Fred at the trailhead and walk the “1/4 mile” from the overflow. The turned out to be 1 mile up hill walk. So, for me, it turned into a 7 mile walk instead of the 5 mile walk I expected. It was still well worth the effort. Please enjoy the pictures to understand why.
