La vie de vélo

Adventures in cycling and life

Back to the damp, rainy forests

Jos and I took a long weekend and flew out to Mt. Hood for a friends wedding this past weekend. It was great to be back in the pacific northwest!! I had planned on doing some backcountry skiing up on the mountain but instead put in ~ 24 miles of hiking and running in the National Forest and surrounding wilderness area trails. There is something magical and alluring about the big trees, the raging creeks, the sheer volume of living green things, misty valleys and mossy trails. I haven’t been back in this ‘bioregion’ since 2003 (when I graduated from Humboldt State University) and I really miss it. Only wish I had a fly rod and my MTB with me!
