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.
And into the woods along the Marquam Trail.
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.
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.
Don’t you love the Laura Foster walking books. My friend Margit and I take one twice a month. I think we’ve managed most of them. However, the west hill walks remain my favorites. Do you think it’s because we all grew up around there? Thanks for sharing your walk. I feel like I was with you. We went to Crystal Springs Rhodie Garden and Reed Canyon for our last adventure.
