Last week gave us temperatures ranging from high 90s all the way down to mid-60s. On Wednesday, Wolf and I took to the hills. The Columbia Gorge is but a short drive from metropolitan Portland, but the change of pace is drastic. We hiked up what felt like a thousand feet in elevation along a rocky trail to a mystical waterfall. The whole hike up we wondered if we were on the wrong path, but our patience and perseverance were rewarded in the end.
It’s nice to take a bit of time to enjoy the last bits of this beautiful Oregon Summer before it’s too late and the clouds and rain lock us back up in the dungeon for the next 9 months.
