  • Ran the Angel’s-Devil’s Rest loop trail in the Colombia Gorge the other day... After taking a break from running for a few weeks due to runner’s knee I decided it was time hit the trails and see how my knee felt. With the help of some @kttape (if you haven’t used some, get some) I set off up the Angel’s Rest Trailhead.
    The trail is beautiful this time of year, I always love Oregon trails in the rainy season. The fire scarred trees add a unique contrast to scenery. It is awesome, especially as a wildland firefighter to see all the forest life that was left unscathed by the fire as well as the new life arising. On that note, I do want to mention that even though the trails are re-opened there are still hazards to watch out for. I saw a decent amount of catfaced trees as well as widowmakers looming overhead. Be careful out there and always be looking up down and all around.
    The trail was thick with mud in many spots but is still in great condition after the fire. Reaching Angel’s rest my knee felt great so I continued to Devil’s rest via the left side of the loop. The My KT Tape got pulled off by my pants around mile 5 and after hopeless efforts to reapply the tape I continued to run for 3 more miles until my knee had had enough. It was upsetting to get so far only to come up short and have to walk/limp 2 miles back to my truck when I had so much left in the tank.

  • On our way to Lake Twenty Two, a gorgeous alpine lake 🌲⛰🌲 If you end up hiking on a clear day, you'll be able to see snow cover mountains in between the forest trees 💙

  • While we were checking out this waterfall, we ran into a father and daughter scouring the creek and turning over rocks. They had shown up in a big white truck that was hot on our bumper earlier. In the Southeast, I'd have said they were looking for crawdads, but we gave them their space and let our curiosity develop. .
    Upon exiting the creekbed we ran into them. The father could barely contain his excitement. He started showing us agates and rock specimens with astounding fervor. "Are you guys rock hunters? We are! Look! We found a ___ and a ___. Oh! Look at this one; it's a ___. They're not much now, but they'll polish up nicely!" He sputtered in what felt like one run on sentence. It was all happening too quickly for me to process and not fast enough for his liking. I'd add that they were some of the coolest rocks I've seen even without the finish work. .
    As soon as the accelerated show-and-tell was over, they turned heel and were on their way. His passion was endearing. I was happy that he was sharing it with his daughter--and for a brief moment us. Off rolled the big white truck. Two rock hunters hot on the trail.
