Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Chiyoko & I spent St. Patrick's Day with our friend Seamus exploring some of the lesser known paths & old roads in the Prindle area of the Gorge opposite Multnomah Falls.

The long way to Elk Meadows

Chiyoko crossing a snow bridge into Elk Meadows.

Sunday the 10th the clocks sprang forward & so did we with a snow shoe trip to Elk Meadows with Mana & Ed. We went the long way, by heading up Elk Mountain first the hiking along Bluegrass Ridge before setting leaving the ridgeline & heading cross country over to the Elk Meadows Shelter. We didn't get the blur bird sky we were hoping for but it was still a great trip.

Nothing like a good bit of Toad in the Hole with roast potatoes & 2 veg for dinner :^)..

East of Catherine Creek

last Sunday we set out with the Sunday Hiking Group for a big loop around the East side of Catherine Creek & the big Arch. It was a bit windy when we started out but we were treated to lots of Sun on this First Sunday in March!
