We went to Grassy Knoll last weekend, in the Columbia River Gorge, of course, most of our hikes are there, so many to choose from! At the top there's a 360 view. You can see the river in the photo below on the right. The panorama kind of gives the sense of how high we are. And Mr. Simmons standing on the trail shows it's a little steep. Just steep enough.
We were convinced the trail was four miles each way but sadly when we got back and calculated it was only four miles round trip. Woops.
So after that grueling hike we had to stop and get a burger. I was staring out the window of the Ale House and realized I had designed the sign hanging in the park across the street. It's the 100th Anniversary of the Historic Columbia River Highway and ODOT hired me to design banners and street light standards.
