Up in the PNW for another work trip and managed to sneak in a few hikes along the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon side. I wanted to get to the bottom of Elowah Falls but the trail is currently closed due to the trail being washed out and impassable. Not to worry, there's an abundance of trails and waterfalls to see all along the historic Highway 30. Ponytail is a cool little waterfall with the trail wrapping around behind the falls. It's not too far from the trailhead so I added on more distance by continuing over to Oneonta Falls. No rain (odd...) but plenty of eye-popping green foliage everywhere. Expected to see Hobbits running through the underbrush.

First of three hikes on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. Very cool!

Dang my gps route disappeared with the HAZ app update.

Good trail. Weekday in the rain and still saw some people.

We ventured offtrail to find the hidden falls. On the rainy return we took a straight up way back and surprised the buggers out of a group of trail hikers because just as one of them said "Careful here's a steep tricky part on the trail," I clawed my muddy way up and hefted my chest back on to the trail from the cliff right in front of them. They gasped and asked where did we come from. "You don't want to know." Noel waved to them with her non root holding hand below me when they peered over.

Headed over to triple in the rain, took some umbrella pics and finished the loop. Great last hike of the week.

Typical winter day in the Pacific Northwest. Low clouds and fog but took the chance to see some fall colors and get in a short hike in the Gorge. Lots of water in the falls today. While the skies looked darked, we lucked out on the rain. Looks like there is a new bridge above triple falls. The first time we did this hike a few years ago I don't remember it being there. Looks like we were a little late for the autumn colors, but there was enough left to make it a nice day.
