Coyote Wall, WA (18-49)

As we drove toward Hood River to cross the bridge to the Washington side of the gorge, we noticed fire burning high on the slopes above White Salmon. We realized it must be a controlled/slash burn, not a wildfire, thankfully.

We walked up Coyote Wall about half way on an overcast day.

Looking over the wall and up. The sky is a bit smoky from the fire above White Salmon, just over the hill.

We begin to see the shoulders of Mt Hood under clouds to the south.

We decided to head down, as the wind was picking up and blowing more smoke toward us. 4.3 miles, 1000 feet for the day.

Knitting

I am blocking the Ivy Cardigan, and I finished another round dishcloth.

The fall colors have been a pleasure to walk through – my camera can’t quite catch them and yet I try.
