We couldn't help but stop and capture a shot of the Columbia Gorge. In the distance, you can see the sun trying to break through.
Zoe insisted on a photo.
The hike up to Wind Mountain was peaceful and included lots of switchbacks and some huffing and puffing, but the views were worth the effort.
By the time we reached the top, the sun came out.
Demonstrating a way to combat the acrophobia.

Trying to get the most of the summer and daylight hours, we roamed McMenamins' Edgefield grounds in Troutdale, Oregon. Edgefield is quick getaway for city folks and its grounds consists of a soaking tub, golf course, vineyard, tasting room, glass and pottery galleries and an artfully restored hotel.
Really enjoyed the gardens.
