Family post-Christmas Hike

With Erin in town for a few days for the Christmas holiday during a break from grad school in Chicago, we took an opportunity for the whole family to hike the Dog Mountain Trail in the Gorge that RuairĂ­ and I had done previously. We got a bit of a late start and Beth had to be back in town early, so we turned around at the viewpoint at 1600′ shown here. Still, with Portland socked in with persistent fog, it was nice to get above it into the beautiful sunshine for awhile. Afterwards we stopped and had lunch at the Big River Grill in Stevenson, WA, a popular stop for Gorge hikers.
