As mentioned last week, I spent ten days in beautiful Winthrop, WA dogsitting for my in-laws. I decided to treat all three dogs to a stroll at Pearrygin Lake State Park. If you think a novice should be walking three dogs at once, don’t.
Spring is here, in our calendars, hearts, and gear closets. Even with this year’s massive snowpack in the mountains, there’s some great lower-elevation trips and hikes soon to be carpeted with wildflowers!
Timing is everything. While this gem along the Columbia River Gorge offers stunning views in any season, for a few weeks in spring these views are gilded with millions of wildflowers in bloom. I timed it perfectly!
