Welcome to the first of a few “busy season” hikes, where we are almost literally hiking around our backyard for a few hours on Sundays. In February, we took a turn in the Tualatin (pronounced: Two-All-Uh-Tin) Hills Nature Park.
And so it begins! The first day of 2020 marked the start of our third year of intentionally going on at least one hike per month. Per the usual, we started in Forest Park. This time, however, we went to a more remote location and essentially made up our own loop heavily featuring Firelane 15!
You know the phrase “Sand everywhere!”? I say it ALL the time when we’re going to the beach, at the beach, coming home from the beach….. and this time when I said it, there wasn’t an ocean to be found. But frankly, there was sand EVERYWHERE. You can watch the video here!!
For short trips into Death Valley, these are two incredibly easy sights to see! Both are magical (in their own ways) and both have landscapes you won’t find many other places. You can watch our short video here!
We went to Death Valley National Park!!! If you follow us on the Insta or the Facebook, then you already know, but those that don’t, I’ve been wanting to tell you for AGES and now I can!!
Definitely check out the preview video on the YouTube. It has some extra content that we couldn’t find a home for in the longer videos. Also, why YES, that IS snow that you’re seeing in the video. It. Was. Bananas.
Give us a warm(ish) autumn day in the Pacific Northwest and we’ll find a place to hike. It was a perfect morning to get out and explore the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge and tackle the Cape Horn Loop Trail.
