HIKING AT TAMOLITCH FALLS -BLUE POOL. Located in the McKenzie River Valley and very subtle hiking trail that leads to the famous Blue Pool.
I'd say I spent my Memorial Day in a very laid back and quite way. We went hiking in Tamolitch Falls or otherwise known as Blue Pool. We actually went last year in the middle of summer and the falls was not flowing then, so I did not really understood why it was called Tamolitch Falls when there was no falls at all.
But yesterday was a different story. There was actually falls in there. Since we went there a bit early in the season, the snow is still melting explaining the rush of the falls and the water was still very high. Unfortunately, the pool was not as blue due to the rushing water falls. The people who went there yesterday were disappointed because it was not as blue as it was suppose to be. SO If you want to see the Blue Pool, go towards the end of the summer instead of late spring.
The hike itself was a very easy hike. There are few rocky points and the trail do not have a lot of elevation change so you can bring your little ones there. I love the sight with all the lined big trees which give a lot of shade and moss covered the pavements.
Bring an extra sweat shirt as it tend to get subtly cold under those big trees. Bring your kids to explore the surroundings, observe the moss, climb the fallen trees and find some insects there too. Also, don't forget to bring eggs or little munchies to enjoy at the end of the trail.
SO THIS IS HOW TAMOLITCH FALLS LOOK LIKE WHEN THE FALL SETTLES....
