8.5 miles of hiking • 2250' elevation gain •

Forgot to add this one from a few weekends ago. Lovely day spent in the mountains with friends.

The road to the trailhead is a bit scary, rocks, potential slides, and some gnarly dropoffs but we didn't have a problem getting there in a Subaru.

Trail was barely maintained, I recommend long pants. I did a bit of scrambling to get to the top of the ridge for fun.

After this trip, I was watching a documentary on the Andes on netflix, and a woman interviewed said- “You should live where your heart pounds.” Might have been more poetic in her native language, but the translation worked for me. Grateful to hike in Oregon and Washington. Thankful for every day I get out whether solo or with friends.


Father Guido Sarducci and nuizontann heart this trip.
