We drove up in to the Gorge this afternoon and took a hike. Awesome. The trees are changing color and the air is crisp. It was lovely.
There was a sign at Latourell Falls (where we went hiking) that told about how the Gorge National Park is the first land ever set aside by the Nation as a recreational park - back in 1915. And it is absolutely gorgeous - full of hikes and waterfalls. For miles up and down the boarder of Oregon and Washington there are amazing hikes to check out. Its a great playground.
