Another week of Pandemic, another urban volcano hike, new spring blooms, a bit of crafting, and some good advice from George Washington.
April 16, 2020 – Hike of the Week
Rocky Butte is another Boring Volcanic Field volcano in Portland. We walked there from the Rose City Golf course, and had a great view of the High Cascades Peaks, with a coyote sighting along the way.
Meanwhile, we walked up the road and through the tunnel.
Eventually, we reached the park on the summit.
Views in all directions:
And a last look at Mt St Helens before heading down.
Hike#36, 6.5 miles, 420 feet.
New blooms in the neighborhood and garden this week:
I made forward and reverse progress on my Meris sweater. While playing yarn chicken, I made the sleeves too short. I have knit just about every part of this sweater three times, so now I will reknit the lower sleeves. I sewed more masks, started sewing a new bathrobe to replace the one I left behind in Queenstown, and continued knitting Emily’s shawl, and the purple socks.
