More On The Way

It's been too long since I've posted and I can say that we've been busy, either working myself in my new role at the bike shop, or exploring the wilderness the Northwest has to offer.  Eli and I have explored numerous trails around the Colombia Gorge, Mt. Hood, and more recently our attention has turned to Gifford Pinchot National Forest, which is a true treasure of this country.  Last week we hiked two days in a row, using Morrison Creek Campground as our base camp on the southern slopes of Mt. Adams.  The second day I think we would agree, has been our favorite hike yet: 13 miles roughly, taking us up to about 8,000 feet, just at the base of Mt. Adams glaciers on Trail #183, South Approach.  The wild flowers are in full effect up there, with plenty of indian paint brush in deep red, blue lupines, bluish wild daisy looking flowers and thousands of two different species of butterflies.   Eli has taken so many beautiful photographs of our adventures.  When we get enough time and patience to sit at the computer and compile our words and images, we will share with interested parties.  So stay tuned for our presentation of OUR SUMMER VACATION.
