While Barry was away last week, I went on a nice long hike by myself on a trail in the Columbia River Gorge that I've been meaning to check out for years. As I was told, Eagle Creek trail runs through a canyon full of gorgeous waterfalls. As I was told, it's a busy trail, even on an overcast weekday. Glad to have seen the falls. Glad to have had a day full of hiking on my own. Glad to have run into a father and teenage daughter who were going on her first backpacking trip. Glad to know while I liked the hike, I don't want to backpack here. Glad Barry's back now and we'll be backpacking somewhere else this weekend.
