8 miles of hiking • 3000' elevation gain •
Yesterday was beautiful and sunny but with a bitter wind, so I chose to stay in the trees and go up Augspurger Trail to the top of Dog. I have missed the gorge sneak peeks through Douglas firs so I was super happy to go this route. The wind had shifted to the north by the time I hit the top, so the trees made a lovely warm place for an extended lunch. The Dog portion of the trail was super muddy and a bit slick. Great day!!
