Hiking in the Pacific Northwest

  • Last weekend we had a break in the unseasonably rainy spring/summer here in the Pacific Northwest - YES, actually unseasonably rainy for those of you familiar with the Portland/Seattle weather patterns 🙂

    Any time we get a break in the rain we jump in the truck and head out to the wilderness for some hiking with the dawgs, living east of Portland we are less than an hour from the great Mt Hood Wilderness area. We have been doing a lot of exploring and Dude & Ono LOVE getting out in the forest.

    Here are a few photos from our hike up to Ramona Falls, Ono was a little too stoked to be out in the wilderness and couldn't hold still for anything but a blurry photo - Dude being the handsome man he is loved posing for a couple shots… Enjoy!

    Overlooking the Sandy River, years back there was a large mud/landslide which created the river basin you see
