I spent all of Tuesday on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge.
We hiked 13.4 miles total: Hamilton Mountain (and Rodney Falls, pictured, one of my favorite waterfalls to date) followed by Cape Horn. The day started sunny but it’s pretty obvious we go fogged in quickly! You can’t really tell from the photos but a lot of this hike was very exposed - on cliff faces and such. Highlight: scrambling/crab walking/sliding down into a deep, mossy, steep crevice near the summit of Mount Hamilton (don’t worry Mom - I was careful :) )
About once a day I’m blown away with how lucky I am, how beautiful this world is, and how much there is yet to explore.
