Meet a couple who like waterfalls so much, they visited over 300 elusive, hidden falls away from any trail or tourist. We will also follow members of the Umatilla Tribe who are in the final phases of relocating Meachum Creek. And Portland's Christmas ships - a 60-year-old tradition. We ride along and get to know some of the local crews!
