Walking in the Woods
I took a nice long walk this morning. Took the Max up to Washington Park. (one stop west of our new apartment). The train station is way underground and climbs to 700 ft above sea level and lets you off up at a scenic hilltop. By Texas or Ohio standards, its a mountain. Here its just a hill. Once I got up there I found a free trail map and took Wildwood Trail up to Pittock Mansion where I could see Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens in the distance. It is a cloudless fall day here and just perfect for scenic gazing at the mountains and the fall color. After stomping around the manison grounds I continued on Wildwood through Forest Park and finally found myself spit out into a neighborhood close to home. Ahhhh.
