There is no lack of outdoor activities in this area. We’ve recently been able to enjoy the outdoors a little more, which is a nice change of pace for us. A week or so ago we took Scenic Highway 30 making a few stops along the way. We’re not too familiar with the area so it was kind of hit or miss for us in terms of where the good hiking is. I randomly found a turnout with a few cars and two trails, so we stopped…my mistake. It started out good, for about the first 2 minutes. After of which the trail ended and we started traversing a slippery rock face… GF was not impressed; Nicole and I quote “The most intense and shortest hike I’ve ever done.” It was getting to the point of being semi-dangerous so we turned around and took the trail heading to the right. Which was just as short, but less intense. We also got to see a couple rock climbers and walk under a little waterfall. We asked them where the good hiking spots were and they pointed in the direction of the Multnomah Falls, we’ve been there so decided to continue past.
Been a busy couple weeks. I actually worked, first time in a few months. Just temp Contract IT work with my previous employer for a week in lovely Torrington, WY, but work nonetheless. Small town but good company. It was a pleasure working with the ol’ crew again. Hopefully I’ll have the chance to do so again in the near future.
Snow: Portland, Oregon’s Kryptonite
I’ve never seen anything like this. Mind you I am MT native and didn’t have the “pleasure” of driving around today. But I don’t recall ever seeing the roads or weather so bad that school was canceled, we’d be lucky to score a school delay. Or weather so bad that it causes an entire Metro area to shutdown. Not the case over hear, we’re taking full on chaos.
