On Monday we went on an awesome hike to the top of Dog Mountain in the Columbia Gorge. I took about 50 pictures and added them to my Dog Mountain Flickr set! If you live in Northwestern Oregon or Southwest Washington, this is a great day hike. It only took about 2 hours to get to the top, some of it was very strenuous but slow and steady wins the race, and the rewards are awesome views all up and down the Columbia Gorge, views of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Hood, and beautiful wildflowers.
