I took my daughter to Larch Mountain in the Columbia gorge. We had to hike up four miles to the trailhead as the road was closed at the 10 mile marker, and the trail head was at the 14 mile marker. so four miles and about 2000 feet of gain. There was a lot of snow up there. then we hiked down to multnomah Falls. 6 3/4 miles down. picture goodness at http://uncletoby.net/larch She felt good the next day, but I still ache. It was a fun trip though.
