Bicycling Portland to Hood River

Jason and I bicycled from Portland to Hood River on Saturday, something we have talked about doing for a while. Neither of us have been bicycling that much this year but we were blessed with perfect conditions on a great route and really enjoyed the day. Jason prompted us to get an early start which really helped to beat the heat and traffic leaving town. In Hood River we got to visit with Jennie and Gavin and Jean drove out to visit and give us a ride home. We even got in a visit to the beach on the Columbia.

Camping in Badger Creek Wilderness

Headed to the east side of Mount Hood on Saturday with Scott for a two-night backpacking trip in to the Badger Creek Wilderness. We'd been there a number of years ago and had always wanted to go back. We came in from a different direction this time and saw some great terrain. At the beginning we couldn't always follow the trail because of the snow and it was hard going at times. We had a great campsite and got the morning sun first thing. Really relaxing to be out in the woods. More photos.
