Columbia River Gorge
The Memaloose Hills lie east of the little town of Mosier, Oregon. It is across the Columbia River from the Catherine Creek Recreation Area.
In early spring the area is well known for its fields of colorful wildflowers.
In mid-September there were little to no wildflowers, but it was a fun day to be hiking nevertheless. There was sunshine, and in places there was a nice cool breeze.
The oak leaves and dry balsamroot crunched under my boots as I followed the trail. Deer tracks and black bear sign were commonplace.
At the higher elevations the views were far-ranging up and down the Columbia River Gorge.
I look forward to returning in the early spring when the wildflowers begin to bloom.
