On a cool and cloudy day, I broke out the hiking boots and day pack.
Soon I’m stretching my legs on a four-mile hike over and back from Council Crest, the highest point in Portland.
Most of the outing was on Southwest Trail no. 6 and the Marquam Trail. At times, it seemed I wasn’t even within the City’s boundaries.
A handful of other residents were enjoying the day too, mainly folks walking their dogs.
The appeal of the outdoors can not be resisted.
