Angels Rest on the Columbia

Not too long ago, I got to experience the northern shore of the Columbia River courtesy of our friend Scoot Scoot, remember? Well, just this past weekend, I got a taste of the Oregon side of things. I think it is safe to say that the Columbia River from either vantage point is a worthy spectacle.

Although the weather was hot and humid beyond my comfort level, I couldn't pass up the chance to get out of the city for a hike with friends. When we reached the top, after significant elevation gain*, I could really see where it got its name from. If I were an angel, I think I would stop here and have a nice picnic. Besides the lovely view, the welcome breeze, the cheese and crackers*, I found this inspiration gem hidden off the trail a ways. After a group shot and more view admiring, we headed back to the city for a BBQ.

Good time abound here in Portland, I've decided.

This wonderful little hike can be found at latitude:45.55968 longitude:-122.17295 (or for those non-nerds among you, off eastbound I-84 at exit #28 (Bridal Veil))And I forgot to mention the plentiful and varied berries we found along the trail. We couldn't identify them but they sure were tasty!
