    you were in my ‘hood! I adore how SW Portland has all the forest-y goodness in it-i’m a fan of the trees! Tryon Creek is nice too. although I get totally turned around in it-tons of little trails all intersecting. But pretty!

      I thought about you when we were looking for the hike! It’s such a nice area. I loved it when I lived in Multnomah Village. Hillsdale is super cute. Have you eaten at Chart House?

    Looks like a really nice day. Where I live, we ended up getting a big snowstorm Saturday with over 10 inches of snow! I’m relatively new to the area that I live in, and still trying to find trails. There’s quite a few of them, but they’re more flat, with not a lot of hills.

      Ooof! That’s a lot of snow. Hopefully you get some sunshine soon. Sometimes flat trails are fun. Are you a runner? You could try running them…

    We have to travel about an hour to find a decent place to hike because we are on the edge of farm country. Our house is surrounded by cotton/soybean/corn fields. Literally.

      There are a few nice spots in town, but for the most part we have to drive at least 35 minutes to get to any real hiking. The best hiking is over an hour away.

    Hiking in Florida would not be fun 8 months of the year. 🙁
