John Day River: Cottonwood Canyon and Thirty Mile Wilderness Study Area

11.5 miles of hiking • 2250' elevation gain •

Got a cabin for two nights at Cottonwood Canyon SP. Weather was a little rough on the first day, we hiked the Pinnacle Trail in the park. The second day was perfect for our big adventure: dropping down into the John Day canyon from the high tablelands above. The goal was to find some petroglyphs, and that was successful, but the journey was what made the trip so wonderful. The desert a perfect balm for our soggy souls.

The 2023 BCEP class has begun! First hike with the Alpenhounds. They were good sports in the dreary weather and were game when I suggested a switch up to get a bit of steep climbing in.

I've been working too much, and mostly skiing and climbing on my days off. It was nice to get out for a quiet hike. I didnt see anyone except near the trailhead. Snow floating down all day, it was magical. I took the Vista Trail above Fairy Falls and had to break trail in knee deep powder!
