Exploring Wild Oregon
We spent an entire day surrounded by the wonderful forests of Oregon. Coming from the south where beaches and palm trees are the standard, I am always amazed and delighted at the sight of mountains. There's something about being surrounded by something that completely engulfs you and seems endless, you'd think it would make you feel uneasy but it makes life seem more simple somehow.
There's an endless amount of hiking trails about 30 min. outside Portland. We stopped by Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge be warned though, these trails can be challenging so make sure you're geared up appropriately (this is no place for semi-stylish footwear). Also, make sure you get a map of the trails at the Falls before adventuring to the Gorge, we found this out the hard way.
