The First Fall Colors
More vine maple fall colors. Such beauty!
Although it was cloudy and foggy at the top, we could see partial views of the valley below. From what views I could see, I was impressed. John said there is a stunning view of Mt. Hood from this vantage. Guess I'll have to come back again on a clear day!
I think John said we lost 2500' on that trail. It sure seemed like it! We hiked down, and down, and then down some more. There were some steep downhills. My knees were starting to complain. And then, just when I thought we'd never be done descending, we arrived at the junction with the trail that climbs out of Eagle Creek. This was the trail that would take us back to Wahtum Lake and the car.
