[photos] Hiking Dog Mountain

This morning, tillyjane and I set out to hike Dog Mountain, on the Washington side of the Columbia Gorge. The wildflowers are just starting to come in over there, and we hoped to see some nature.

Unfortunately, what we mostly saw was chilly overcast and winds of 30-40 mph howling through the trees. We walked about 90 minutes up, but the steep trail and lousy conditions were discouraging, so we turned back without summiting. Still, it was a great walk with some lovely scenery.

The trail and some views.
