9.6 miles of hiking • 500' elevation gain •
Sometimes, you need a little sunshine when Portland gets into the dreary wet season.
Went on a hike today lead by my friend Matt Reeder, who never disappoints when choosing an unknown destination. It was a long drive from Portland, but well worth it.
The days and my mood have been dark lately, so hiking in the high desert was a welcome change.
And as a bonus, I got to put a face to a name here on wenthiking, as Woodswalker also joined in on the fun. Small world.
I was fairly introspective and quiet and in my own head today, but it was nice to get out with a group.
