A Day in Wonderland
We spent yesterday afternoon in the Gorge hiking up to Angel's Rest view point, a three sided vista allowing an all encompassing view of the Gorge and beyond. It was a 4.6 mile round trip hike, moderate in difficultly and breathtaking in beauty. Because of a 1991 wildfire, the hike guides you through several varying patches of forest separated by open areas offering expansive views of the Gorge as you ascend to the top. My favorite part of hiking in the Gorge is the light. It creeps through the dense forest and delicately paints itself on new leaves, moss covered branches and rocky formations. It is is truly a magical place and only about 35 minutes from our home!
