Hikes for July and August

We had a blast hiking up to Angel's Rest last Saturday. Scout and Wrangler led the way :)

It was a gorgeous day--everyone and their dog seemed to be out enjoying the sunshine.

In July, there are two hikes to take note of: on July 12th, Bonnie Moore will be leading the Wahkeena Falls/Multnomah Falls hike. It's a great trail--you see a gazillion gorgeous waterfalls going up and trek down over the top of Multnomah Falls on the way back. Of course, we treat ourselves to an ice cream at the Lodge when we are done! This trail is a five mile loop and has some pretty serious elevation gain. Dogs welcome! Meet at the church at 9:00 am or meet at the trailhead at 9:45. For more info, call Bonnie: 503-492-1411,

Then on July 26th, we'll team up with the stop and smell the roses gang and do Ramona Falls together. This is a favorite of mine--Scout has some pretty wild tales to tell about this trail. Check Dana's site for details (see sidebar). (Extreme Women lite)

Then, tentatively we hike around Timothy Lake on August 2nd and maybe even do a little trout fishing while we are at it. This hike is easy but long. Stay tuned for details!
