How else to describe this place? Other than: good God, it's gorgeous. Too bad Proxy Falls is a good three hour drive from Portland, or I'd make it there more often. Still, it is certainly one to revisit. This particular trip was a challenge, though... not only was the trail completely snow covered (with some unstable, rocky landscape beneath), but the road to the trail head itself was snowed in and gated, which meant hiking an additional 2.5 miles through snow to even reach the trail head.
I was asked - was it worth it? The answer, of course, was a resounding yes.
