Too much rain and water in the lowlands.
Time to visit and enjoy a ten mile hike in the upper eastern slopes of the Coastal Mountains.
I began the outing in wonderful Oregon sunshine (to the uninitiated, that’s concrete skies and drizzle).
Crossed the Buxton Trestle and continued several miles on the Vernonia Rails-to-Trails.
Took a long lollipop loop on the Hare’s Canyon and Boomscooter Trails.
Good exercise, interesting history of the old railroads and lots of rainforest to provide entertainment.
And hooray! It’s the last day before daylight savings time begins.
