This summer I took myself on an incredible 10-day trip through Seattle, Portland, and Denver. My goal was to see mountains, and I can say that goal was accomplished with flying colors.
Here are some of my favorite moments up in the mountains of Oregon. I hiked up Multnomah Falls, drove along the Columbia River Gorge scenic highway, and climbed to the top of Tom Dick and Harry Mountain in the Mt. Hood National Forest.
