In an attempt to maximize our Washington State Discovery Pass that expires soon, we chose a destination that we hadn’t hiked that required this pass. In addition to the view of the Columbia River, we saw Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood. We finished with over nine miles.
Looking back the trail we just hiked towards Mt. Hood. The man climbing up behind us was the only person we saw until the junction a mile back. Then it was later in the morning and there were lots of hikers out.
That is me in the distance hiking up the ridge.
