First day of daylight savings time and what a day it was.
Sun breaks, a light breeze and wild flowers too many to count.
Enjoyed a nine-mile, 2,000-foot elevation gain hike on the east side of Catherine Creek Canyon, mainly in open Oak Savannah.
Besides thousands of purple grass widows, there were gold stars, buttercups, salt and pepper, yellow desert parsley and saxifrage in bloom.
In the morning deer were moving into the upper canyons.
Great day to be in the Columbia River Gorge.
