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.


nuizontann and Woodswalker heart this trip.
