It’s always a joy to hike with my favorite model.
The Weldon Wagon Road built in 1911 is the very definition of a good early winter hiking destination. The well-maintained trail travels through an open Savannah Oak Tree environment.
Views extend to Mt. Hood in the south and below to the small town of Husum nestled along the White Salmon River.
In another several months golden balsamroot and purple lupine will be splashing the hillsides with vibrant color.
For now, the warm sunshine is a welcome treat.
