Behind our cabin at Lake Chelan, about a 1/4 mile up the hill, is a waterfall from which our community gets it's name, Granite Falls. There is a primitive trail that leads from the main road up to the falls. Last winter there were really bad wind storms that toppled trees near the trail making it difficult to hike up to the falls.
Dad had a solution for this.
Early Friday morning he and I grabbed the chainsaw, shovel, and loppers and headed out to clear the trail. Of course we all know how dangerous it is for me to use power tools, so dad manned the chainsaw.
Maybe not the best idea.
The first tree he tried to cut through he got the chainsaw stuck in. Rather than help, I shot some pictures for evidence:
Luckily we were able to get it back out and after only one more incident of getting the chainsaw stuck we reached the falls.
The next day we hiked up there with Ella, Sadie, Jeff and Sara. The girls loved it.
Dad and I enjoyed watching them enjoy it:
Check out the rainbow - such an amazing place:
