We had the best weather the last few weeks.
My friend and I celebrated with a hike through the hills of West Portland.
From Laura O. Foster’s wonderful book, “Portland Hill Walks”.
WIth spectacular views of the city and mountains.
Past beautiful old homes.
Daffodils in bloom.
And into the woods along the Marquam Trail.
A magic place.
Up to the highest point in Portland, Council Crest.
We weren’t the only ones with this idea.
A gorgeous view of Oregon’s highest mountain, Mt. Hood.
Then back down, through back yard trails.
Past sweet dogs longing to play.
And a beautiful old wall.
We hit the right weekend! This one is soggy and wet.
I’m not complaining! It’s the Portland spring rain that keeps everything so green.
