Stunning views while hiking with my big brother today along the Columbia Gorge just outside Portland, Oregon.
Glad we challenged the threatening skies and headed up the trail, the weather turned out to be beautiful. Warm sunshine broke through the clouds on occasion, heating up the damp forest, which in turn emitted some of the most amazing scents. If they could only be bottled!
In addition to sweet views, this trail provided a great little workout with an elevation gain of 1582′ on this 4.25-mile roundtrip hike.
