Last Saturday we went hiking at Angel’s Rest in the gorge. I’ve been on this hike several times and always enjoy it. It is only a thirty minute drive from home, and offers great views and a good workout.
This trail, along with many others had been closed for over a year since the Eagle Creek Fire, and had reopened last fall.
All the way from the trailhead to the viewpoint on the top of the cliff there were charred trees. I’ve never hiked through a place devastated by fire before, so it was a new an interesting experience from that regard.
Some areas on the trail were a bit muddy with puddles but mostly it was fine.
Views were great as always.
