Winter Hiking

The weekend brought fairly clear skies and a little sun, so we thought we'd get outdoors for a bit. 
 This is a small part of Smith Rock State park. We took a less traveled route since everybody and their brother thought they needed to get outdoors too! This is a very popular rock climbing area- and if you want to see us doing it for my husband's birthday in 2011 check out THIS BLOG POST.
 Down by the river are old growth ponderosa pines. They are amazing old trees.

 The dogs were happy to get out of the house too!

 It was a chilly day despite the sun. If we were hiking on an area that doesn't get sun it was still snowy and icy. The trail was very muddy in some areas.
 This really isn't rock climbing, but some other crazy adrenaline sport!

Was great to get out of the house!

More snow is in the forecast- I hope it's wrong. We've had enough!


  1. I have yet to get to Smith Rock and NO, no snow!

  3. So fun to get out and enjoy the bright cold days! Elsa has grown up to be a beautiful dog.
