Smith Rock State Park hike

I spent the day digging for a septic tank lid, so I really needed a good hike . Waffles had waited patiently for “let’s go!”

Beautiful time of day – the color on the rocks just glowed . Across the river , one guy went up Misery Ridge . 2 climbers were on the Monument . The geese were very quiet . The peace I needed .

Smith Rock fog hike

We had a fog inversion today that cancelled flights out of Redmond and doesn’t seem to be lifting . It made the colors really stand out – wow – but was too cold at 28 degrees . No rock climbers out !
