Great day to start off a great year!

We had a great turn out for our hike at Multnomah Falls this morning. Sixteen peeps on a gorgeous-sunny/chilly-blustery day is pretty impressive, if you ask me.

We had high hopes for making the loop from Multnomah Falls to Wahkeena Falls but the higher we went the more icy snow we ran into, so instead of waiting for the first person to slide off the trail into the waters along side us, I called it. And everyone admitted they were happy to turn back, even though I'm sure a lot of us could have made it the whole way. But never leave your buddies behind! Even though it was less than we had planned, we all got out, saw beautiful vistas, made new friends, and ushered in 2013 getting feeling awesome, instead of nursing hangovers. Sounds perfect to me!
Here we are, ready for anything!

We expected the mist of the falls to make
for some slick conditions at the bridges, but OMG!

Really pretty though! Once we got past this, we made good time.

Thanks to everyone who made it. I'm really excited to do put together more events through out the year.  Here are a few I'm thinking about, but would love to hear some of yours
  • movie night at the studio
  • history walks
  • learn to use your neighborhood park as your gym
  • walk and sketch
  • secondhand store tours
  • foodie tours by bike
  • you fill in the blank ______________________________
Happy 2013, everyone!
