ancient fir trees
We enjoyed our rainy Saturday afternoon by hiking some of the trails at Rockport State Park. We started on the Skagit View and Sauk Springs Trails south across Hwy 20 (about 1 mile round trip) where we were dwarfed by several ancient firs and a few giant cedars. Luscious moss and ferns covered the forest floor and also draped many of the deciduous trees. Scattered among this very green scene were patches of yellow violets, bleeding hearts, and an occasional trillium. We encountered a few muddy spots but nothing serious.

Next we hiked the Evergreen Trail (another couple miles) and enjoyed more towering trees and a splattering of flowers lining the trail. It was a very quiet day in the park. We saw no people or animals, only 1 very large frog. Though we didn't hike every trail in the park, the ones we did hike were all cleared of downed trees and in good condition.

Columbia Hills State Park

South Cascades

From Dalles Mountain Ranch to Horsethief Butte, the rolling hills along the the Columbia River Gorge are blanketed in spring flowers. Ramble along until you find the perfect picnic spot on more than 12 miles of hiking trails. A meadowlark might even serenade you.
