Our photo challenge theme is numbers and there are so many ways to tackle this unique theme. Reviewing the archive for photos with numbers a couple themes came together. Mountain elevations and waterfalls! These types of travel & hiking finds are memories I savor and I hope you enjoy.
Make sure you swipe left to see the related scenic picture that goes with the summit or waterfall sign.
Here’s a couple of my 10Ks. Fortunately, I wasn’t running a 10K and I drove up most of the way to the 10K elevation mark to enjoy the area and views.
Beartooth Pass in Montana
California’s Ancient Bristlecone Forest
This trip is memorable for a couple of reasons. It was a weeklong roadtrip with a girlfriend and we both got to experience new areas and our own girl adventures. One of them was a forest area containing 4,000 year old trees. You can hike to the oldest of the old trees, the Methuselah. Although you can hike through the Methuselah Grove in the Inyo National Forest, you won’t be able to identify the actual oldest tree. It remains unmarked to protect it from vandals.
We, unfortunately the May snowfall level kept us from hiking too far that day. That hike will need to await a future visit.
I don’t know about you, but I’m always game to visit a waterfall. Big or small, they are always grand to me. Hearing the rushing water falling to the ground is like a sedative. Sometimes it is a mild volume and other times it seems to shake the ground. Both of these waterfalls were noteworthy for their height.
Multnohma Falls – Columbia River Gorge in Oregon
Takakkaw Falls in Canada
Old bridges are also fun to come across, unless it means you get stuck and can’t get around. Be careful to read the signs. We’re big and heavy when traveling in the truck camper and our navigation doesn’t alert us to these kind of hazards. So far we’ve either been pre-warned or just lucky enough to not have any of them be a reason to turn around.

Not only did you take us on a wonderful tour of hiking and waterfalls, but you also shared the stats of the areas, too, Cheryl! Very clever! I have also hiked at 10K and it is exhilarating. We’ve hiked at the top of the Tioga Pass on the 120 as you enter Yosemite from the east. Right there in Tuolumne Meadows, three peaks are 10K and higher, with Mt Lyell at 13K. Tuolumne itself goes from 8600 to 9900 in spots. Rarified air indeed! It’s been a while since I’ve been to Multnomah Falls, but I’ve driven past it on the 84 countless times. I also have a pic of Montana from our short road trip during Memorial Day weekend when my brother was here–3 states, one day, LOL! I really enjoyed your snow pics of Methuselah Grove! Have a great week!

Doing anything at 10k elevation is tough when you grew up at sea level but I definitely enjoyed both of those visits. Bear Tooth Pass was sooo windy! Making it very cold too. The Sumit there was very busy with cars and even more motorcycles. It happened to be a festival weekend and they like to cruise up and back!
