I’ve been been overdue on a strenuous hike for a while know, especially after being in Kansas for nearly two months. So, earlier today, I drove into the Columbia River Gorge to Dog Mountain to enjoy a 7-mile round-trip hike.
On the lower half of the hike, the forest provided good cover from the wind. But up top it was a frigid blast of non-stop wind. There was even a bit of snow atop Dog Mountain.
